This is a painting of a Cuckoo came about during making the paintings associated with the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. A chance occurrence upon hearing a Cuckoo led me to making this painting. It seemed apt at the time, thinking about how these birds take over birds nest, laying their eggs for another to raise, being able to lay the similar colour eggs as the host bird, symbolic of taking another country and supplanting their culture (Brood Parasitism).
