'Bird Brain' Series

About this project

‘Bird Brain’, a series of sculptural forms from 2014-2016, invites us to delve into the conscious and ask how we see ourselves and others.  Each a form of archetype, these birds are chosen to represent chapters on the road to awareness, for nothing is always as it seems. The endeavour of the labour intensive making process parallels our continuous striving for clarity and serenity. Brett Chinnery’s artistry is in the seemingly effortless combining of material, process and meaning.
