Welcome to the exhibition preview of Attracting Birds: Sounds and Skies by Lee Moore Crawford. All images on this blog are copyrighted by the artist.
Barred Owl, Conical Dipole, collage painting In my Durham neighborhood, there are a pair of allusive Barred Owls. The Conical Dipole is a type of antennae, which I think is a fine metaphor for them.
Bird Spaces Two in the Blue, photo painting
In this exhibition there are images of trees and skies. These are entitled Bird Spaces, relating to the Japanese art of flower arranging, Ikebana, where you have Heaven, Earth and spaces to let the birds fly through.
Welcome! This Blog is inspired by the exhibition above. In the days leading up to the opening and after, you will find images of the art in the exhibition, "personal bird encounters" and other inspirations by Lee.
Others are welcome to share comments and their own bird encounters.
"Attracting Birds: Sounds and Skies," is part of an ongoing series that
partners bibliographic inspirations with the artist's expressions of
personal bird encounters in collage paintings, photography and recordings.
This most recent rendition is a collection of visual poems about the bird
encounters in residential landscapes of two historic neighborhoods in
Raleigh and Durham. Also included are “soundscapes, skyscapes and
treescapes that create an environment for Attracting Birds.
