Original Painting by Margaret Petchell 2014

Acrylic on Canvas 760mm x 1100mm


This series of birds, from the 2013 exhibition “The Commoners”, is a collection of birds native to New Zealand.

The birds pose proudly as if sitting for a studio portrait, puffed up, solemn and dignified

In each of the images, the soul of the bird has been captured, creating a connection with the viewer enabling us to relate to them on an emotional level. The birds have all been named, giving them a character and identity of their own.
