Black Birds Gather

“These paintings are part of a larger body of work created over the past two years. Some of the recurring themes in the work are language, time, decay and the interconnection of things. The work explores mark making as a type of language or narrative to transcribe messages. The marks are influenced by temporal and urgent nature of graffiti. The marking out and covering over of marks and imagery explores the passage of time and the intersection where the past and the present coexist. The lines and forms moving from end to end on the canvas are systems of interconnectedness. The physical process of making these paintings with the involvement of the body creates a messy rawness in the work, evoking the natural cycle of decay.

The work was created in a space where time stood still, as the world sheltered in place and nature became a refuge. Small observations of the natural work became illuminated, inspiring and informing the work.” – Margaret Fitzgerald
