Butterflies symbolize the concept and process of transformation. In this work, Slonem has chosen to concentrate on one color of butterfly. What does the color yellow mean to you?

“In Nicaragua as a teenager, I would collect butterflies. I would play hooky to take trips to the jungle, watch snakes slither through the trees, take in the fragrance of plumeria flowers only present in my surroundings. Throughout my travels, I’ve noticed that each country seems to have its own fragrance, even Hong Kong, and it permeates through the experience of that place ... There was a spring stream on the property in Nicaragua, and I remember seeing over 100,000 butterflies at once. It was the most exciting thing in the world. Families of turtles crawl out at noon, night jasmine vines filled the house with fragrance, almost beyond tolerability. I had these unusual larger-than-life experiences and have based many paintings off of what I’ve experienced during them.”
