A Parliament

Did you know a group of owls is called a parliament or wisdom. I guess it seems obvious that birds with such a powerful reputation as owls would be called a parliament. Which seems fitting as today we are voting for a new parliament in the UK. It’s a tight election and nobody really knows what is going to happen, uncertain times ahead.

And here’s my beautiful  new piece A Parliament (I’m voting for this one!). They are hand cut from maps of the Towns and Cities of England and Scotland. I’m not sure how much owls really flock together but I like the idea that they get together every now and again to discuss owl matters. And here I’ve caught them in the act and am sharing it with you. Nature is so inspiring yet so often taken for granted (I know I do anyway) so it’s good to stop and marvel at it every now and again. That’s my aim with my work.

A Parliament is 92 x 72 cm framed and costs £8000.
