Butterfly on the flower, 24 in x 32 in, acrylic on canvas, Ferrara, 2019
Butterfly on the flower
“And the night flowers open,
in the hour I think of my loved ones.
They appeared among the viburnum
the crepuscular butterflies. “(G.Pascoli)
They are these butterflies, which in spring go around dancing from flower to flower
in front of our hearts. Moreover the picture represents the pure sense of life. Sweet creatures, which are sometimes captured and locked up in cold boxes.
In fact, from the picture it is thought that they are not just insects, but bewitching beings for the charm of their colors they give joy and happiness to anyone who sees them.
So they seem to heal from sadness and loneliness.
The butterflies help to find the smile. The painting makes us fly over infinite horizons, between bright colors and finally the butterfly returns to settle inside the corolla of a fragrant flower.
Moreover the sun hides behind some clouds, in the silence of the woods the last butterfly seeks shelter before arrival of the cold winter. The butterfly also represents a symbol of freedom, elegance and tenderness for the painter Alessandro Tognin.
The author of the painting describes them with joy and vivacity as previously mentioned. Laying from flower to flower, the butterfly savors its colors, its nectar, its perfumes and its velvety petals.
Contour to the painting are bright and at the same time contrasting colors that inebriate the view of the spectator.
