Train tickets, pencil, goache
A time-line of tickets from my own journeys;
Birds seen from the train window, painted onto these tickets.
…Passing through their world in the bubble of a train carriage.
They in flight, on water, in trees, fields…
Is that where they live, their territory or are they just passing through too?
Where do they belong?
Where do I?
Pathways crossed for a fleeting instance…
Another reminder that my world is theirs…
The process of making these works has caused me to consider among many things, which birds appear most on particular journeys, in specific habitats and also to reflect on which birds seem to be seasonal inhabitants of these areas … Maybe keep an eye out yourself next time you’re on a train…
