Artist’s Mother Inspires Beautiful Butterfly Installation

Late last year, artist Taegan Roberts created this beautiful installation at a youth art exhibition in Geelong (a city in Victoria, Australia) called “Peel Your Eyes.” Lit underneath with just one white light, 1,000 origami butterflies are stunningly soaring up to the ceiling. Called “Alis Volat Propis” (or “She Flies With Her Own Wings”), the installation is dedicated to the artist’s mother who lost her own mother when she was young.

Roberts told Amanda Louise Hobba that her mother went on to raise two children of her own, as a single mother. “She inspires me because she always has a positive outlook, a strong head and a warm heart. She is my best friend so I wanted to represent her somehow and I thought 1,000 origami butterflies might be a good start.”
