Birds Of Pray - Apostle, Bishop, Cardinal And Jesus (jacana) Birds

Description : Inspiration for this painting came to me one morning while I was painting in my studio. I heard a cacophony of bird sounds coming from just outside my window and looked out to see several apostle birds happily chortling to each other. Don’t know why, but I counted them and there were twelve, counted them again and yes there were definitely twelve apostle birds. Ah ha the seeds of inspiration were sown! I then researched and found that there were other species of birds with “religious” names. Having found Bishops and Cardinals, I wondered if “Jesus” birds existed….. I should be so lucky I thought! Well lo and behold I found the Jacana which is sometimes referred to as Jesus birds. I decided to create an image of these birds in a religious setting and doing my own quirky version of “The Last Supper” within a stained glass window. I am thrilled with and proud of this painting which I have titled, not Birds of “Prey” but “Birds Of Pray - ” Apostle, Bishop, Cardinal And Jesus (Jacana) Birds I sincerely hope that you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Artist's Profile

I am an artist who thrives on variety and challenge. I have a passion for colour, vibrant or subdued, as is evident in my work.

 

My style is thematically and stylistically diverse, deliberate and intended.  It doesn't fit happily under a single descriptor as it encompasses whimsical, surreal and the absurd.  I like to think that a unique and often quirky perspective on that which surrounds my subject matter, or me, ties my work together.

 

As an artist my greatest challenge is to produce paintings that transfer my abstract ideas and mental visions to tangible images on canvas.  I create my images from ideas and inspirations derived from eclectic sources such as common phrases, play on words, juxta positioning objects with objects and animals with objects, homonyms, colour journeys and from nature itself.

The paintings are an expression of elegance with the slightly surreal suggestions of gentle movement.  I pay particular attention to placement, exploration into colour and composition in each artwork.  To achieve these results I use various techniques such as pointillism, sponging, impasto work and am never afraid to try new methods to produce each piece.

 

I am an intuitive artist who remains seriously committed to my art and I intend to continue exploring ideas, processes and techniques for many years to come.
