Gilded Bird Paintings

This is a series of iconic small paintings intended to monumentalise these extraordinarily beautiful creatures. I've appropriated the language of Byzantine illumination in order to capture their striking appearance. The pictures on this site just don't do the gold justice but you can see one in its frame below which shows something of the luminosity.

I began this series about two years ago and since then, many have found homes in private collections here and abroad. If you would like to acquire one, please see the web sites of the galleries where they're being shown (information below).
