Art: Papillion by Artist Tiffini Elektra  X
"Papillion" is collaged on a wood box using vintage labels and dictionary pages, old cigar band and label, and image transfers.

With the light on images of butterflies appear. I am currently enjoying making functional three dimensional objects out of things that already exist. Using materials that are durable but quite old. Wood and paper boxes, layers of vintage text and found objects, a dab of paint here and there. Striving to create assemblages with an almost theatrical story that the viewer can interact with.
