Midnight Christmas Bird | Sally Fagence
“Lockdowns in Aotearoa have been a reminder that most things we are planning in life are out of our control.There are some things though that we can still rely on like the first Pohutukawa flowers symbolising that Summer is near. Along with that arrives Christmas and the fictional Christmas midnight bird which I always hear the song of around that time of year,as an adult and as a child.” - Sally Fagence
Sally has repurposed this wine barrel stave into a sculptural artwork. Images are layered down the stave like a story board showing our the magical Christmas bird in its natural setting. Please click on the images below to see up close the beautiful detail of her artwork.
