Birds on a Wire

Inspired by the work of musician Leonard Cohen, these mixed media paintings incorporate a liberal movement of ink and paint, referencing Japanese calligraphy and a few cartoonish strokes. Gold and silver foil from joss papers (spirit money) perch along with the birds to reflect the light. As Cohen writes, " Oh, like a bird on the wire | Like a drunk in a midnight choir | I have tried in my way to be free."
