Peg the Bird
Leonard Brett 2010
This work is primarily a lyrical fantasy, a flight of the imagination.The product is a mythical urban bird. Creativity arises out of the tension between spontaneity and limitations, like any work of art it has to have a structure. The colors are bold bouncing complementaries . The forms are made in wood relief which were collaged to make the image. The relief produces shadows and accentuates the image. As long as there is light the work will produce shadows and highlights.
