Bullet-Fly Effect

The visual prowess of Rubem Robierb’s BULLET FLY EFFECT series has secured his place in the contemporary modern art scene.

The altered photographs combine the beauty and delicate innocence of a butterfly with war figures like bullets or machine guns to create powerful metaphors for life, war, death, and metamorphosis that are violent and beautiful at the same time.

BULLET FLY EFFECT also alludes to chaos theory and the ‘butterfly effect,’ where the flapping of a butterfly’s wings in New York can culminate in a tsunami in Japan as a result of universal interconnectivity.
