Blackbird is an inspired cut paper hanging sculpture. It captures the color shapes and movement of blackbirds, the primary inspiration for the sculpture. The color is pure black of one side and a textured deep blue black silver on the other side which has a sheen that allows the light to change the color and feel of the sculpture. The cuts evoke movement and feathers making this a more literally inspired sculpture that still maintains a definite interpretation of a blackbird rather than a straight on representation.

I hand cut several small squares of heavy weight textured two sided paper with a pair of fiskar scissors and then carefully placed them along a single thread that hangs from a tack or hook in the ceiling.

As the sculpture gently moves and spins in the breeze you will discover new colors, textures, shapes and level of perception.
