'Migration: Teal Winged Ducks' by Jonathan Ricci

Migration: Teal Winged Ducks
Acrylic and collage on canvas

Artist Statement

On a formal level, I try to fearlessly combine paint, color and collage into joyfully poignant, nonlinear storytelling. My current work weaves images of birds with geometric patterns and color schemes. The image of the bird appears in an almost obsessive way. This bird image is based in memory, leading me back to my grandfather’s aviary. It is also symbolic, the image of the bird in mythology and the ideas of flight, travel and migration. Many of the paintings have collaged images, notes, maps, cutting layouts and letters that I have inherited from family, friends and loved ones. The work takes its form from the simplicity of childhood images and memories of an innocence lost.
