"THE NEST" 2012

"The Nest" was inspired by Robert Montgomery's saying, "Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, a dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest". In this artwork, the fairy tree stands as a metaphor of Life on Earth, and the birds are a symbolic representation of Mankind. In an increasingly complex world, home is no longer simply a place of birth or residence. It has become a concept evolving with time, since human beings are constantly confronted with the challenge of necessary migration, as life and historical events lead them to re-create homes wherever they can transport memories, rebuild a personal history and live in peace and dignity. The collage & stencil techniques were selected for this artwork in order to transpose repetitive phenomenon & to create a multi layered visual depth, while the colour palette was inspired by the diversity of nature and its profound enlightenment by the Sun.
