The Birds and the Bones continues my exploration of animal portraiture as personal narrative. I have been drawn over and over again to the imagery of falling feathers, birds in flight and bones.
I've been looking at choices, pathways, what is protected and what is not. The feather is a symbol of possibility and hope whereas bones notoriously mean death. However, they are both merely cast offs – the things that have been left behind.
