Assembled Insects Created From Salvaged Metal Scraps by John Brown

Gathering extra pieces of metal, John Brown assembles his findings into sculptures of vivid butterflies, insects, and birds. Although the sculptures are built from salvaged materials like nails and bicycle chains, the pieces somehow remain fine, wings appearing just as thin as a butterfly’s own. After welding each piece together, Brown completes the sculpture by painting the wings with oil paint, accurately copying the markings of particular classes such as the Holly Blue and Red Admiral butterflies.
