Workshop - Racheal Speirs - “Creating fairytale-like birds with paper & textiles“ Saturday May 4 2024
Speirs masterfully uses the materials to steep "metaphors as a way to translate questions of daily life and distort the unpleasant or mundane into an absurd and fractured folk tale."
Her sense of colour and layering of the various medium creates unexpected but deliberate placement of depth and texture. It gives an approachability of play and curiosity that draws the viewer into a satisfying sense of wonder, with a bit of love, whimsy, darkness, and hope thrown into the mix. It recognizes that we are not just one thing but a multi-faceted array of many things, much like the collage-like effect of Speirs' language.
