JS BIRD - PAINTINGS AND WORK ON PAPER
J S B I R D
YELLOW DEER STUDIOS
Aesthetically I combine layers of image, pattern, text, and layered painterly surface into complex and dynamic compositions. I delight in the manipulation of form, color, composition, edge, shape, placement, and the artistic mark. I am captivated by the juxtaposition and relationship of the natural world with the engineered and scientific. The balance of organic form with patterns created by the human mind, the diversity of language and human symbols; Ultimately I seek the intersection of material, color, environment, symbol, beauty and tension into one unified image with a complex and beautiful surface.
