Bird was found in the depths of an unused fireplace. Bird died, unknown, unheard, until found many years later, desiccated, featherless. This inspired words and poetry, and from these, images and forms. I am investigating Bird, making a memory of Bird as is and as was. The process continues, is unfinished, has just started. I use many mediums to try to get to the essence of bird. I wait to see where it ends.

The sum of these parts forms an installation, with each piece a small fragment of this life, this memory or this legacy.

Only a small selection of work is shown here, I exhibited much of the work with The London Lighthouse Gallery, London, a virtual link is below.  For more information please contact Annabel.
