Beer Can Butterflies by Paul Villinski

Posted on: April 27, 2009

NY based artist Paul Villinski creates mesmerising art installations and pieces from found objects and trash, and his Beer Can Butterflies are among his most striking work.  In his own words – ‘Who leaves these crushed beer cans – forlorn evidence scattered in the streets of the city? I take these “dead soldiers” – every one of them once raised to someone’s lips – and breathe new life into them, changing them into images that suggest the possibility of change itself. A kind of conceptual unity develops between materials, process and imagery: my practice in the studio mimics the act of transformation that butterflies symbolize everywhere, in all cultures.’
