Owl Feathers: after Thorburn

Works On Paper

Highly Commended

Printed feathers on paper, 32x24cm

As Artist in Residence at the British Museum I have been researching and drawing feather-work from Oceania.

Over the past years I have drawn and painted feathers and birds, and explored how they have been used to enhance and decorate humans. I am also aware of the plight and precarious status of many species, which I wanted to represent in the delicacy of the image on the feather.
