The Local 1 2019
Mixed media, paint & digital composite on aluminium
200mm x 200mm
The images of the birds have all been taken on our property at Pumpkin Hill.
I have composited the birds with images taken at the Tairua Refuse Station and placed them on a backdrop of Te Kara Bay.
I wanted to create an image with a surreal mood, a beautiful bird on a beautiful landscape, littered with careless waste.
I am creating a series of these images where I repeat the process of printing and painting on aluminium. I experiment with varied layers in the printing process to help highlight and embellish chosen areas. I then hand paint each panel, making each piece unique.
