Mortuus Merula 'Sepultura'
2016. h:66cms x w:80.5cms (framed).
In this drawing about my imagined ideal burial of the blackbird I placed him where a garden of my beloved childhood toy 'Spears' Flowerplay flowers would grow from him. These little plastic flowers are from a kit where you could endlessly re-assemble many flower parts in different configurations. The plastic is so faded and brittle now I was moved by the idea of organic and inorganic longevity/brevity and decay/preservation.
