Wood Nymph
18 x 18 x 1.5
Mixed media with acrylic paint on metal tray.

Wood Nymph was created during my summer trip to Maine, Bar Harbor. I was staying at the ‘Tide watch’ cabin right on the dock and experienced the actual water level risingElena_Fattakova_woodnymph_Films_on_Artists at night and disappearing in the morning. I found a piece of a vintage fabric with butterfly print right at the door. Inspired, I continued exploring the woodland and came across a butterfly cocoon. And the Wood Nymph was born.

Found objects such as lace, fabric, birch tree barks, cocoon made of fiber, and an actual butterfly juxtaposed into a composition.

* “Wood Nymph” was exhibited at the Films on Artists Gallery, Chelsea, NYC in 2011 and The 5 B’s Fine Art Exhibition at the Wayne Art Center, Pennsylvania in 2015.
