Birds, 2013-

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. Drawing on Dutch 17th century genre painting, they play simultaneously in the realms of the tragic and slapstick, the beautiful and grotesque.
