produced on commission
The Oystercater and the Pearl Feather is a unique book. The book presents an exploration of the pearl both as a pigment for painting and as an evocative material of the imagination. The sequence of paintings are preceded by a short mythopoetic essay by Ian Boyden that considers the alchemical symbiosis of the oystercatcher, the oyster, and the pearl. Read the essay here.
