Bird Series

Once again signs became the impetus for these works.  I had taken images of the birds off signs and planted them into the landscape and vice versa, painted the bird from life and placed it out of it’s surroundings and into images of signs depicting the area -as with Shag at Lady Denman. I love the simplified versions of the bird portrayed in signage -such as the bristle bird that is easily recognisable but lends itself to my own interpretation in paint with colour.

Birds are a constant source of fascination for me and one of my very favourite books is Birds by Judith Wright.  It combines wonderful illustrations with Judith Wrights poetry.
