Skeleton Park Arts Festival and the Union Gallery are presenting a group exhibition in the Skeleton Park neighbourhood featuring original works of art by local artists to be displayed on their front door, outside their home, or from a window visible to the public.
Artist Statement: I paint watercolours and acrylic paintings. My practice has also spanned photography, found objects and text. In 2004 I painted 7 Sparrows with the cutout silhouettes of the birds added to the image like notes on a page of music. The painting displayed outside of my home, Bird in Bush presents a cardinal in a tangled thicket of branches, with a cloudy sky in the background. the depicted scene is actually the view from outside the window at the back of my house - a snapshot in march of a dense tangle of wisteria, when the first call to stay-at-home was announced. The branches are black and dominate. The bird, small and bright red, offers some hope that the gloom will lift some time soon.
