We visited the studio of French artist Ludo in Paris as he prepares for his London solo show Chaos Theory at Lazarides Rathbone.
Using his trademark neon green and monochrome palette, Ludo’s new body of work illustrates themes of dissolute time and resolute chaos, through a battalion of futuristic mechanical butterflies.
Blending nature and human technology with anatomical and technical precision, Ludo references the accelerated pace of life in which people continually strive to keep up with the ongoing race against the clock. The frail and ephemeral butterfly image is reincarnated into hybrid creatures that possess strength and durability reminiscent of combat weaponry: the Butterfly effect.
