WATCHERS, exploring human nature in the image of the Crow.

As I consider the similarities between humans and crows I am amused at how they expose us to our best and worst behaviours. We see in Crows the things we admire in ourselves. As well, we see the aspects that we wish no one knew about. These similarities mean that for a large part of human history, crows have been an ever-present and high-flying part of our world. Living together with these corvids as they hold up a mirror to our “human” nature has been the inspiration for this group of work.
