Flight - a kaleidoscope of butterflies
St Georges Hospital, Stafford
This commission was created with service users and staff of Brocton and Chebsey wards at St George’s Mental Health hospital, Stafford. Each piece was created during a series of workshops attended by service users.
Every wooden butterfly is unique and has its own character and destination. No two are the same, so when flying together new patterns and shapes are created, and individual stories are celebrated. Each wooden silhouette gains its unique pattern from the use of coloured paper, recycled magazines and fliers. Using very ordinary reused paper creates the extraordinary and explores the themes of transformation, metamorphosis and regeneration inherent in us all.
