“The Swans will sing when the Jackdaws are silent”
For her most recent project, 'The Birds', Fiona Wilson has used print-based imagery to depict women who may have assumed certain characteristics of their feathered friends. Throughout history birds have featured in many cultural sayings and tales and Fiona has drawn upon these as inspiration. Some birds are thought of as wild, some are tame and some have been captured, caged by their desires. Some fly south for the winter, but some have had their wings clipped, so are forced to stay.
