Bowerbird print series

Here’s a new set of screenprints ready for the show ‘A Pair of Drawers’ with my sister Alison Porter. The prints are inspired by the resident bowerbird at Melbourne Museum, and show the variety of blue things bowerbirds like to collect – pen lids, bottle tops, clothes pegs, toy helicopters…in non-urban areas they collect snail shells and feathers instead. 

‘A Pair of Drawers’ is at The Brunswick, 3 Duke Street, Swansea SA1 4HS, October 8 – November 22, 11.30am to 11pm daily.

    They are an interesting species the ‘bowerbird’. I like the expressions in the bowerbird’s eyes. They look mischievous .
