Artist Description

Artist Notes:

The emotional value that still life paintings and birds hold for me, have become a very important part of my visual language.

I love portraying birds together with static objects, as the contrast of the animate and inanimate is an intriguing visual dialogue and one which I find myself regularly responding to. One of the things that surprised me during my explorations was the manner in which contrary to how we perceive still life objects, they actually hold much fluid content. They trigger emotions from past associations allowing the viewer to move through time whilst remaining rooted in their static structure. Birds trigger a similar emotional experience of more than one state as well, even while perched they still offer the promise of flight and hold the symbol of freedom and movement.
