This Butterfly and Phoenix Collection of artworks is in celebration of transformation and the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, as well as symbolising eternity, strength, and renewal.
The phoenix, the concept of this mythical bird being reborn from the ashes of the flames of death signifies a journey through fire or adversity.
The butterfly is a deep and powerful representation of the transience and transformational journey of life.
This work offers you a poetic melody of flames that blaze through the soul freeing us on our own indiviual yet collective beautiful transformative life experience, representative of our own journey where suffering and beauty coexist and become one at peace in both the darkness and light.
René August is a photographer / image maker who sees and feels life through her visions and expressions. Her inner exploration and own transformational journey has transitioned her onto exploring and creating work about the unseen, the beauty in the undiscovered, harnessing her ability to see and capture, both the light and the darkness.
