Birds have long been a central aspect of my paintings as an acknowledgment of the symbolism they embody in the context of ancient cultures and their artwork. Often, birds represent omniscient, vigilant, and unbiased figures that gain their knowledge through surveying the land from the air. In my work birds act as a guiding force that compels the subject of the painting to act in a way that benefits their community, the earth, and everyone who comes after them. Although this concept may sound idealistic, it is the premise for so many of the most profound and intriguing stories from various religious texts all over the world.
This print is a way of bringing this symbol from my paintings to you in a more personal and intimate setting.
