Birds of Melbourne, 2019
Linocut on unryu and lokta paper with embedded leaves, cut outs and collage.
Size: closed – 15.5 (h) x 13 (w) cm
Birds of Melbourne uses linocut cut outs on folded, organic paper with embedded leaves to explore local avian species within a city. Birds contribute constantly to the soundscape and visual experience of the city dweller. They are part of the urban ecosystem yet awareness of their presence is often subliminal or fleeting. Simplified shapes representing specific birds found in Melbourne move across the artist book in an abstract narrative to consider the importance of these creatures to humans and the environment.
