“Angel was a ballet dancer that I once met at a recital. She was a woman who shined with beauty all over the place. Inner beauty, outer beauty. It was everywhere. We shared only a kiss at the end of the evening and then I dropped her off at her fiancee’s flat. The next day I began work on this painting. She had said she loved butterflies, and that was the first thing I saw in the chaos of the paint. I knew in that moment that I would soon find Angel in the pigment too. Little by little this painting emerged.”
