2017

About the Item

From the transformative to the ephemeral, the birth and death of a butterfly is reimagined in a photo series on butterflies by Roberta Fineberg inspired by a poem by the 13th Century Persian poet Rumi who writes: ‘Whatever you know, or don’t - only love is real’. For Union RF explores the natural and man-made world in which two caterpillars break free of their skin for a metamorphosis. Hatching into exquisite creatures, the vibrant couple sip nectar from flower to flower on their short sweet journey. Union, 2017 by Roberta Fineberg is 18" x 24" an archival pigment print in an edition of 5 with 1 a/p (artist's proof). The photograph is titled, dated, and signed by the artist. Available: 1/5 Provenance: RF Archive *** Artist's Bio: As a photographer and visual artist, Roberta Fineberg (RF) focuses on the themes of serendipity, inventiveness, and development of ideas for her photography, video, installations, works on paper, and painting. Drawn to experimentation, she explores diverse mediums and subjects such as the ephemeral (butterfly series), stolen moments (documentary work), play, timelessness, the enduring, and significance of matter.
