If you are in New York over the next few weeks, make sure you do not miss ACS member Rebecca Jewell’s exhibition at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery.
Jewell has a passion for studying and cataloguing birds and feathers which is reflected in the subject matter of this exhibition. The artist represents the fragility of wild birds by using moulted feathers from domestic birds as her chosen medium in her printed, collage and illustrative works – the feathers used are from domestic birds and “found” moulted feathers.
By visualising the fragile nature of wild birds through the use of feathers, the work displayed here shines a light on contemporary and historic methods of bird capture.
Until 6 Jan
Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 262 Mott Street, New York NY 10012
