I Am A Bird Lover – Jane Heraghty

New works on paper
October 4th – 23rd

I am bird lover.
I love
their feathers, colours, calls
I love
the hopping bower bird
the drunken parrot
the night- jar hiding
the butcher bird stealing eggs
the pardalote nesting in the wall
the yellow footed fowl yowling at night.
As a bird I make the mundane miraculous.
I can make myself seem close when I am far away,
I fly and shit at the same time.

In these new works on paper, I prove both my existence and non-existence by recording myself in a series of self-portraits that are about change and the never ending madness of life.
