Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

As the great wheel of life turns, young fledglings make their first forays into the sky above the Otago Peninsula, NZ. Each journey is marked by the distinct cries of both parents and young calling constantly to each other. It is such a beautiful and moving experience. I acknowledge their arrival with this painting, and endeavor with this work to honor this sacred event. Currently I am very interested in the ‘Deep Green Resistance’ and author Derrick Jensen’s ideas, also the ‘Dark Mountain Project’ and Paul Kingsnorth’s writing on environmentalism. The author Derrick Jensen talks of an indigenous American Indian tribe who has traditional ‘salmon welcoming songs’ for the annual salmon run. I want to use the lines of flight and the connection between the adult birds and their fledglings to express the invisible threads that entwine our whole existence.

* This painting has multilayers of acrylic paint on canvas making this work highly textural, finished with a quality varnish for a protective finish. The canvas is stretched over professionally made wooden stretcher bars, the painting is ready to hang.

*All paintings will be packed by the art packing professionals Pack and Send to their international standards.
