Artist: James Chiew
Title: Butterfly white IIII
Technique: Lenticulair in frame
The artwork “Butterfly White IIII” by artist James Chiew is a lenticular piece framed, measuring 65x65cm. The lenticular technique is used to create an illusion of movement or depth and typically involves the overlaying of two or more layered images that can be seen from different angles.
In this piece, one can expect to see the layered image of a white butterfly that changes depending on the viewer’s perspective angle. The choice of a butterfly as the theme might suggest a motif of transformation or renewal.
The frame in which the artwork is enclosed can also hold significance as the selection of a frame can alter how the artwork is perceived by the audience. Depending on the style and material of the frame, different aspects of the artwork, such as its delicacy, historical value, or modernism, can be emphasized.
