Recycling cans and making gorgeous images of birds or butterflies decorations are an attractive idea that adds a beautiful, modern, nature inspired bird and butterfly theme to house exterior and interior design, makes backyards and gardens look unusual and bright, and shows resourcefulness and creativity.
Empty metal cans are a humble, yet evocative material. Every empty can was once raised to someone’s lips and then crushed and thrown away. Recycling cans and turning them into pretty images of birds and butterflies decorations feel symbolic, meaningful and very relaxing.
Images of birds and butterflies decorations, made of empty metal cans, can adorn any item you use for backyard, garden, house exterior or interior design. They make beautiful wall decorations and very special eco gifts. Colorful images of birds and butterflies decorations from designer Paul Villinski, www.paulvillinski.com/ are made of unusual material, inspiring and amazing.
Recycling beer cans, bird and butterfly theme
As the butterflies alight on the walls of my studio, they lead into an exploration of formal, painterly issues. Often, they want to gather into a certain shape, or fly off on a particular tangent, and I let them. They function both as marks in these abstract, three-dimensional paintings, and as actors in curious narratives.
Some pieces develop a quirky, magic-realist quality, as if a strange child has trained the insects to perform some ritual dance we are not usually privy to.
Finally, the butterflies operate symbolically, and I try to develop a conceptual unity between materials, process, and imagery: metamorphosing littered beer cans into flocks of butterflies mirrors the act of transformation and rebirth that butterflies symbolize across all cultures.
Butterflies seem impossible. How can these ridiculously delicate creatures, apparently blown about by the merest breath of wind, actually fly many thousands of miles to migrate? How is it that an innate, intergenerational GPS guides them year after year to the same tree? Are we more like them than we suspect, or could we be?
