A beautiful old book on birds has been used as my 'canvas' for 'Birds Of A Feather.' I have cut into the pages, sculpted, painted and layered the surface with Victorian, retro images to create a 3-D wall-mounted, mixed media work of assemblage.
I was inspired to create this after staying on Looe Island in Cornwall, recently - a wild bird sanctuary, in the care of Cornwall Wildlife Trust. This 'Speaking Volume' has been varnished and sealed and is mounted inside a sky blue, painted, wooden box frame. It is ready to hang.
Wood, book, illustrations, paint, mixed media materials.
