Australian Birds

Works inspired by my australian life and wild cockatoos in the city.

“Here, Australian parrots are recast in vibrant displays of paper feathers. Sulphur crested cockatoos, redtailed black cockatoos, rosellas and rainbow lorikeets are captured in flight, their feathers radiating out from an eye or geometricized beak. Marine has encapsulated the blurred movement of flying parrots within these calm, abstracted forms. These roundels recall pop and op art geometric and abstract forms, and simultaneously bring to mind the feathered headdresses of the Pacific, the Torres Strait and Papua New Guinea.” Words by Susannah Smith, Art Pharmacy, 2013.
