You can tear the wings from the feathers

'You Can Tear The Wings From The Feathers'

by artist Brock Q. Piper 

80 X 80cm
mixed media on canvas

"Flashes of color and pattern enveloped in the struggle to survive just as they are embedded within the layers of paint. Poised on the precipice between life and death, between exaltation and disintegration. The bird caught in a fragment of time, fighting in distress to be free, to escape death. Anguishing as much as it is beautiful to encounter." Dec 2015​
