Candy McManiman

When starting an idea for a painting, I often like to utilize art techniques and technology. By using various mediums, I can create a surreal encounter. By taking the natural world and placing it in an unnatural setting, the bird seems unnatural in this environment. In reality we tend not to adapt to the natural world about us but manipulate it to suit our needs and the birds etc. have to adapt.
We have all seen the sparrow or starling caught in the big box stores or malls and in this case the Raven is caught, searching for the sun. The lines of its open wings resembled the line in the ceiling of the Beijing Airport, so I play with those two ideas. The Ravens in many mythologies were the messengers from the gods or one of the guardian deities or even the creator of the world. With that knowledge to draw on, I then create an unnatural setting.....not what you expected.
