“Avians” by Marc Petrovic
“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. In my newest series, Avian, I take a closer look at this subject as I pixelate, deconstruct and then reconstruct these birds. They are built, much like we are – one piece, or experience, at a time.
Because I use glass as my medium, I pixelate by making my own murrini (slices of variously colored glass canes). I assemble and fuse them into abstract patterned tablets, which I view as fully realized deconstructed birds while also forming them, through my own, “hot-origami” process, into sentient birds.”
