“‘蝴蝶’是一个有着丰富内涵的作品，它既是对自由的赞美和叹惋，又是一场感官的狂欢，同时也是对Joseph Albers、点彩画派、欧普艺术、波普艺术、动态艺术以及抽象艺术的致敬。它可以被看作是一面旗帜，一个靶心，一块标记，亦或如其字面所示，是一只舞动的蝴蝶。” ——艺术家Nike Savvas
“The work Papillon…is many things at once — a celebration, a lament to freedom, a sensual revelry, a protest, homage to Joseph Albers, Pointillism, Op art, Pop, Kinetic and Abstract art. Papillon references painting, both past and present. It is at once a flag, a target, a sign and a butterfly.” – Nike Savvas
