Birds

An ongoing series of bird corpses painted, collage-like, onto discarded objects, these works pair two 'valueless' things to form little theatres of the absurd. Taking elements of Dutch 17th century genre painting out of context, they play simultaneously with the tragic and slapstick, the beautiful and grotesque.
