Passing With Flying Colors
3D Metal Wall Sculpture, 130 cm
About the artwork
With his trademark symbols of butterflies, Kracov delves once more into word play to bring significance to what may just be a visual piece. 'Passing with Flying Colors' is a term most often associated with students and exams', and signifying children with his butterflies, the artist turns the phrase around, showing instead the free flight of the children as they pass by, resplendent in color and levity. This brings into focus both a social commentary of the pressures on children today while also celebrating them in their natural form- colorful, full of life, and with wings of freedom and imagination.
