About the artwork

Coplu’s surreal compositions exercise a simple yet effective visual vocabulary. Employing vivid colours and textured surfaces, his works often explore themes of love, dreams and relationships. The massive heart-butterfly motif splits the work into a dichotomous composition; male and female. Although separated from each other, the connection between the men and women remains unbroken. The symbol of a butterfly suggests an inseverable bond that sheer distance cannot break. One wing is incomplete without the other, and together, they create a beautiful yet fleeting existence.
