Medium: Mixed Media

1- 6 Dimensions: 12cm x 12cm

7 dimensions: 12cm x 24cm

Location: Riverbank Arts Centre

This series of works by Sandy Kennedy illustrate the children’s nursery rhyme “One For Sorrow”, a rhyme that suggests that there is something portentous about magpies. The illustrations are realistic though not photo-realistic. Instead Kennedy gives an impression of the birds. Rather than a detailed and sterile ornithological study the smudgy style gives the feeling of movement as if a still from a film.
