Purple Rain by Lochlan Sutherland (Rholtsu)
An assortment of butterfly specimen (Ideopsis juventa manillana and Idea leuconoe) with a purple transparent pigment.
Inspired from an innate interest in flora, fauna and skateboarding, Rholtsu’s artwork pays homage to his nostalgic childhood. The artist, Lochlan Sutherland, celebrates the beauty he sees in the natural world, showcasing delicate findings in a body of resin. Handcrafted and shaped to withstand a lifetime.
Since kicking off the creative project in 2018, Rholtsu has been busy curating his own exhibitions and working with world renowned brands.
He respects specimen and remains in their natural form. Forever encased. Ever reminiscent.
