feathers 2010

This is a series of 30 intaglio prints depicting 30 birds whose migratory path takes them within areas of the world that are oppressed.  Socially, politically, economically etc...  the final piece consists of a book and folio of prints (unfinished as of now) both bound in copper, and locked in a steel box.  Birds are seen as an international symbol of freedom so I chose to represent the oppression of the world by locking these seemingly ethereal images away, only to be paraded out on special occasions.
