The Butterfly Case | Bernardo Vallarino

The Butterfly Case | Bernardo Vallarino

November 12, 2022 – January 7, 2023

Opening reception: Saturday, November 12, 2022 6-9pm

Love Texas Art is honored to present The Butterfly Case, artwork by award-winning Texas-based artist Bernardo Vallarino. The Butterfly Case is a series of mixed media sculptures, installations, and other interdisciplinary artworks merging religious elements with components of entomological displays. True to Vallarino’s previous social commentary work, this immersive multi-media solo exhibition touches on themes of apathy, racism, and classicism towards groups including minorities, migrants, and the houseless through ornate, precious, doctrine-evoking displays. By using beautiful pinned dead butterflies as a vehicle for introspection, Vallarino asks visitors to consider the value of those living and reflect on how we each treat all humans.

"It is part of the human experience to avoid pain and humanity prefers to ignore painful truths rather than to confront them. As an artist addressing social issues, I feel a responsibility to create artworks that evoke questions with respect to our own behaviors towards others." – Bernardo Vallarino
