Girl with Birdcage and Nest
Birds, even when caged are symbolic of the soul and the expression of freedom. It is a stimulus for thinking about the relationship between personal freedom and social construct.
In this work I play on dreams, imagination, hope and future plans – the ability to be grounded and, at the same time, be able to fly. There is a lovely connection between the elements of earth and air. The eggs in the nest are symbolic of the birthing of new ideas and personal expansion.
This sculpture can include birds on request.
