BIRDS 79 – PEERING IN FROM TOP LEFT
January 31, 2016 15 Comments
As in my previous post, this is an image produced with an eye to composition, to design maybe, rather than picturing this creature in terms of its natural history – when it might be shown in full and/or in its natural habitat.
The bird is shown in detail, dirty beak, “warts and all”. But the backdrop is Minimal in the extreme, containing only that very faint, dark smudge, which is deliberately retained.
Otherwise, there is just a very thin dark frame to the image – containing it as an entity, closing it off – and the bird peering in from top left.
Looking at this, I could see a severed and suspended head but, liking a story with a happy ending, I’m assuming that “the remainder of the beast” is out to the left.
