“The Preciousness of Truth: a Review of “The Butterfly Case by Bernardo Vallarino”

Glasstire

January 2, 2023 by Megan Wilson Krznarich

The Butterfly Case by Bernardo Vallarino at Love Texas Art provides ample opportunity for visitors to assess their own definition of the word. Infused with Catholic references, this exhibition spotlights the experiences of the marginalized, including immigrants, the unhoused, and cultural minorities, with befitting reverence.

Vallarino was initially inspired by a wall covered in a variety of entomological specimens that he and his husband saw on a trip to New Orleans several years ago.
“For me, the butterfly case is a very odd object,” he said. “It’s gorgeous. However, the reality of it is that it’s a very macabre object. It is a carcass pinned inside of a box, in which we’re consuming the beauty of this object that used to be alive.”

Christopher Blay and Bernardo Vallarino discuss Vallarino’s work which addresses the hollow sentiments of “Thoughts and Prayers” in the face of violence in society. Blay’s conversation with Vallarino took place at the Nasher Sculpture Center, where Vallarino is the inaugural artist for Nasher Public, a new initiative at the Nasher.

An ambitious new project is placing North Texas artists front and center. In the space that once housed its gift shop, the Nasher Sculpture Center has opened its first exhibition as part of the Nasher Public initiative. The idea for this endeavor was built on the success of the Nasher Windows project, which made art available to the public while the museum was closed due to the pandemic.
