In The Butterfly Impact, French artist Lily Mixe illustrates the textured designs of beetles, shells, cells, and birds through stark black and white. Doing the job in acrylic on found wood packing containers and furnishings panels, Mixe accentuates the lush motifs of scales, branches, or feathers in renderings devoid of coloration. Every single function juxtaposes the artist’s stylish graphic fashion versus the worn backdrops, which reflect a earlier of human intervention by splattered paint, scratches, and printed textual content. No matter whether introduced as symmetric tableaus as in “Dragon Flying Birds” or an anatomical assemblage of flora and fauna in “Curious Assortment,” the specimens element the similarities and interconnected mother nature of all earthly existence.

The Butterfly Result, which will aspect an on-site mural, opens on November 3 at Saatchi Gallery in London. Till then, find far more of Mixe’s works on Instagram and her web page.
