DESCRIPTION

Astrid Preston will exhibit a series of thirty small paintings of birds. Over the years, her work has addressed our dual relationship with nature, both the wild as well as the cultivated. This perspective is equally evident in her bird paintings. These intimate works suggest a very personal affinity for the creatures, but are also the result of bird "watching" and interpretation from the quiet remove of the studio. For Preston, nature has always had symbolic or perhaps transcendental qualities. Birds represent re-birth, growth, and good luck as well as being harbingers of spring.
