"Avian" by Marc Petrovic, 2017

Summary

This bird is a motif that appears in much of Marc Petrovic's work. As he states: For nearly two decades I have employed birds and bird imagery as a metaphor for my ruminations on relationships, parenting, home, shelter, and geographical identification. As an artist, I have been drawn to the ideas of identity that grow out of a sense of place and self.
