Chelsea Hopkins-Allan – “Rothschild Silk Moth (Rothschildia eyrcina)”

Current bid: $150.00

1 in stock

This artwork is a sort of modern painted specimen of a real life moth called the Rothschild Silk Moth (Rothschildia eyrcina). This species is found from Mexico to Brazil and Paraguay. The wing span of the moth in real life is 15-20cm. This recreated artwork-specimen has a wing span of approximately 26cm. So a little larger that real life but other than that quite accurate! Although the brilliant purple colours and wing-patterns make this hard to believe it is a real creature!! (Look it up!) Butterflies get all the credit but there are so many beautiful moths in the world. And they play an important role in our ecosystems!

I have created this piece using artist grade water soluble crayons on yuppo paper. It is then carefully cut out and suspended between two pieces of glass in a wooden frame. I have signed and titled the piece on the back. It has a hook along the back top edge of the frame so it can be either hung or rested on a shelf.

My pieces of this series have been selling out quickly! Faster than I can create them! So please make the most of bidding on this piece for a good cause if you love it!!!

This is the ‘large’ size of my Moth Specimen Series.

Medium: Artist grade crayons on yuppo paper

Dimensions: 26 x 31cm

This piece is framed in a wooden frame with glass.

Description

CHELSEA COMBINES INSIGHTS AND EXPERIENCES FROM HER WORK & STUDIES AS AN AUSTRALIAN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST WITH CONCEPTS FROM NEUROBIOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY, A LOVE OF NATURE AND ATTENTION TO TINY DETAILS TO CREATE UNIQUE AND MODERN WATERCOLOUR, GOUACHE AND MIXED-MEDIA PAINTINGS.

Chelsea’s intention is to capture those simple yet incredible visual details of nature and the fleeting moments of joy and wonder that we can sometimes miss if we are not looking for them.

In doing so she hopes to not only share her love of nature, but to create a visual trigger for the mind as a reminder of the feeling of this wonder and inspiration for life.

This way, every time we view the painting – consciously or subconsciously we are revisiting that feeling. Research in neurobiology suggests that doing so can reinforce neurosynaptic pathways (thought pathways) towards thoughts and awareness of the inspirational and joyful.

Chelsea began creating these artworks for herself in order to capture feelings of inspiration to maintain hope and positivity through a serious illness. Consciously choosing her mental focus and creating visual tools to support herself in doing so was so transformative she has continued to create these artworks to share with others.
