The Butterfly Effect

Australian painter Ben Quilty creates these amazing images by slathering thick layers of paint with a palette knife and then pressing each wet canvas against the other, folding the two sides together like butterfly wings. Rather than destroying the image, a new painting is born and when the two canvases are placed side by side they become a single painting and a Rorschach is formed.
