Anatidae 1 – 3
“I was sent a gorgeous pair of Mallard wings, which I photographed before importing into Photoshop.., Partly because I liked dark things, and partly because Mallards are heavy birds with dark plumage which dwell in and around water. I figured I wanted to create something which also felt dark – in tone at least.”
“Aesthetically, the pieces have a feeling a little like a hybrid of photocopies, scans, faxes and screen prints – but this is more a result of the way l like to work (layering, degrading, layering again) than any conscious effort to set a style.”
They are deliberately monochromatic, with the only accent colour being blue, which appears as a beautiful flush of iridescence on the top of the wing.
