Leith School of Art – Landscape Artists

During Spring 2020 there was fear in the air culminating in lockdown. As I walked around Edinburgh I looked for beauty and hope. In my final piece of the series, the crow is crushed/framed between the railing and the window, constricted and yet outside and free. There is the railing, almost like prison bars, contrasted with the sky reflected in the window suggesting the view of freedom. There are spiritual messages of hope in the very fabric of the building but is it hidden and out of view or indeed within the very structure of life? The crow is preening himself teaching us to tend to ourselves during periods of grief.
