Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

‘What I See When I See Rothko’ is a responsive study to Rothko’s artwork. It takes the view of Rothko’s square not as a presence in its own right, but as a window at dawn, the blackness surrounding it its frame. Its inspiration was from nights spent in my brother’s room in our childhood home, where a print of Rothko was placed next to the East-facing window. Airbrushed birds, entirely without substance, apprehended only in silhouette fly, disturbed, away from the viewer. Nevertheless, they open up the space behind them, suggesting a blooming world to which the painting is a window.
