Heavenly Bodies 2# - Night Owl
Heavenly Bodies 2# - Night Owl
'Heavenly Bodies 2# - Night Owl', ink and pencil on Antique Celestial Map from 1880, 35x42cm (2013)

Birds do not seem to be bound by the same laws of nature we are. With the very lightness of thought they defy gravity, just as at home in the air as on earth. Forming a link between heaven and earth, conscious and unconscious, the bird is universally seen as a symbol for the soul - so it seems somewhat fitting to put them on a celestial map. The antiquity of the map hinting at the traditional symbolism of the birds, yet the electric blue ink paint bringing them into the here-and-now, glowing with energy and vitality.....
