“Uplifting”

 

 

Statement

The spring and summer of 2020 brought social isolation and a halt to human travel. But our yard was full of singing, hungry birds that had flown hundreds of miles to fulfill their annual migration. It was uplifting to imagine our home as an air B&B and refuge where these feathered wonders could drink and eat and rest before they proceeded to their breeding and nesting destinations. 

It was this image of Home that prompted my art piece.

Materials: wood cube, found bird’s nest, twigs, hemp cord, tiny Seri basket with sunflower seeds, collaged images from calendars and catalogs, recycled red metal bird’s legs
