Birds are urban dwellers we are very used to by now. They are spectators of our daily lives and can be found almost everywhere. On the one hand, they are a symbol of how urban centers are thriving with a variety of fauna adapted to live in these unique locations. On the other, they convey a sense of being watched, perhaps by a foreboding presence.
Drawing from the film Birds by Alfred Hitchcock, this series of drawings creates an atmosphere of dualities: heavy and light. There is a tension between the positive and negative areas of the drawings. I want the viewer to feel the physical presence of the subject and the potential of movement inside of the two-dimensional surface. The installation reflects how these mostly unnoticed creatures can have such an impact on our subconscious.
