Birds on paper

Bird Boxes
Solo exhibition, Unicorn Lane Gallery, Ballarat, 2013

Nine drawings as a response to the issue of the feeding of junk food native bird-life around Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.
A metaphor for the feeding of junk food to our own species, and to our human addiction to consumption in general.

By the Lake
We are all: voyeurs on the shore
Watching, witnessing, being witnessed
We all: seduce cygnet swans with crumbs
Grasping, a moment of communion
Capturing, a moment of delicate down
Holding, quivering life-force on iPhone
Upload to web
Birds to iCloud, boxed trophies
