The English language is peppered with metaphors, but we don’t often think in terms of visual metaphors. We hear people describing so-and-so’s nesting instincts when preparing to start a family or buy a house; we hear about the empty nest syndrome when children have gone off to university or other parts of the world; and of course most of us have grown up knowing the expression, “Nature calls.”
Experiencing nature is a delight for the senses–it is a place where smells replace words, and where colour and sound enter the psyche. It is a place of wonder and wisdom.
Corvus Familia Nidus was created on the iPhone 4 using various apps including Brushes and ArtStudio. It was part of my solo exhibition, entitled The Medium and the Message, at the AOM Gallery in May 2012.
