“Pretty Birds, F-ing Dead” is my first non-commissioned piece on canvas that was a part of a gallery show. I created it for an exhibition curated by Leah Wood to raise awareness of environmental issues. It features birds that have been made extinct due to human action, in an up-cycled, hand painted wooden frame. The birds themselves feature a level of detail even beyond what normally goes into my walls, taken directly from ornithological paintings and illustrations. Dates indicate when the species went extinct/presumed extinct.
