The majority of Rebecca J. Coles’ portfolio is made up of paper cutouts of butterflies. “Each shape is hand drawn and then intricately hand cut from carefully selected paper, focusing on recycling a medium that would otherwise be discarded and lost. I dissect small details of colour, imagery and text into silhouettes that are then re-sculptured, pinned and encased,” [1] she explains.
