Butterflies Are Free.

Last year I proposed creating an original piece of artwork to Greg Ralph, the marketing director at Monarch mountain resort.

The mosaic was assembled by stitching together more than 400 photographs I’ve shot over the ten years that I’ve worked with the Monarch team. I experimented with several variations for the main image before finally settling on the butterfly.

Measuring three feet high by five feet wide, the finished piece has an abstract quality from a distance, but the individual photographs of skiers and snowboarders are revealed once the viewer steps closer to inspect it.

We delivered the piece last week and it was installed next to the dining area entrance at the main lodge.
