About the artwork
Hearts, butterflies, flower-like clouds; these are all signature features in Coplu's surrealist landscapes. A giant butterfly, formed by two heart-shaped wings, covered in hearts, towers over a line of people. They stare at the orange sky before them, the man at the front holding a cloud, as if about to release it into the sunset coloured sky. The image is filled with a sense of hope, perhaps in what is to come, as it captures the very moment of something on the brink of happening, something about to change.
