I am exploring birds in flight, from drawing on paper.
These sheets are larger than A1.
Then translating the drawings into collagraph prints made of card, wood glue and carborundum. These birds are around life size, the plate just fitting on an A1 piece of Somerset etching paper.
This image is considerably smaller with its feet on the ground, silk aqua tint with tile cement.
There is something uncomfortable about a flying bird, it is such an alien image. We see birds in the sky every day, but perhaps it is easier to understand them moving than caught in frozen flight?
