Artist’s Statement
“The Visit explores the relationship between city dwellers and the wilderness. As apartment blocks grow skyward, connecting with nature becomes a carefully curated interaction.
Whether it’s the acquisition of a landscape painting, a mounted elk, or cut flowers in a vase, we seize upon the natural environment and force it within our own.”

I love the questions this work asks of us about city living  & attitudes to the rights of the The Other. Pigeons are ubiquitous, loved by little old ladies and men who feed them and hated by city councils for roosting under the eves of grand buildings all over the world.
I will go back and take more photos before the show closes on the 25th.

    Oh, incredible! I first saw this on my iPhone’s small screen and it looked so much like a real bird. Now on a bigger screen, I’m just blown away by the life in this pigeon. Perfect! And I love pigeons…
