About the artwork

‘Reflections’ by David Kracov depicts the iconic New York skyline in a stylized manner. Parting the centre of the skyline, where the World Trade Centre Towers one stood, a rabble of vibrantly coloured butterflies soar into the sky. Consisting of exactly 2,977 individually hand-painted butterflies, the artist’s characteristic symbols represent the exact number of lives lost on 11th September 2001, and is a tribute to the delicacy and value of each life. In the water below the cityscape, the towers can be seen as fluid and poignant reflections. Despite the darker context of the work, Kracov employs color and uplifting forms to imbue it with positive energy, presenting both a eulogy and vibrant celebration of each life.

About the artist

Born in Boston, David Kracov studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and began his career in animation with the Brad Pitt feature, ‘Cool World.’ David went on to work with Disney Animation, Don Bluth Animation, Rich Animation, as well as several other studios, before beginning his solo work
as a sculptor and painter. Kracov’s vibrant color palette shows up in his unique steel wall sculptures that begin with hundreds of small sketches. David’s meticulous steel work along with his scrutinizing attention to detail allows his sculptures to take on a life of their own, and his famous butterflies take flight. David’s playful and creative works are each a testament to his steady hand and wonderfully unique artistic ideas. His work brings joy and humor to pop art.
