Pointillism Swallows

Category: Traditional

Description

Our eyes allow us to make sense of what we see each and every day – they gather their information, fuse the colours and lights into one coherent shape so that we can interpret the image. This piece is a study of seeing – some may see the swallows, some may see the birds in flight or some may see the birds nestled amongst the trees. We take these shapes and make sense of them, shaping them with our memories and feelings, creating a fusion of what we see in reality and what we think we see.
