Icarus – the Romance

This is a series of three.
I have a thing about feathers and flying. I am terrified of heights and suffer from vertigo, so I have always felt jealous of birds who have wings and hollow bones that allow them to fly so they never have to fear falling, or rather smashing into the ground. There is such an amazing beauty in watching a bird in flight. Such freedom and happiness.

The first of the three images is about the yearning when you look up and wish yourself to be in the sky amongst the clouds.

All three images are edited photographs of feathers. I removed the colour and reduced them to a strong contrast black and white image, then overlaid them with a texture to remove even more of the original photograph before I added subtle colour back into the images. I wanted to create the feeling of Dürer’s engravings.

All other images and textures my own or bought. Edited with Photoshop.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
