States of decay and regeneration are intrinsic to understanding ‘what is beautiful’. The lifecycle of nature and all of its strengths and fragilities is a marvel to behold. Artist Anne Ten Donkelaar understands this well. Her ‘Broken Butterflies’ series poignantly and exquisitely illustrates the harmonious and respectful partnership that we might craft with nature. Recycling is very much a spiritual act in a time that requires us to be present, respectfully innovative, and most importantly acutely aware.
