Sandra Vick

I am a MFA graduate of Edinburgh College of Art. My art practice has continued to be concerned with researching and observing birds; assembling a sense of them and their habits over the year. I use a layering process to build up an image that gives an essence of the bird without being a full representation. Using silhouettes simplifies the images, shifting the focus to the shapes and negative spaces. In some pieces I am more concerned with the story behind the bird, while others are an artistic investigation of composition and space.
