Matt Adrian's lush acrylic paintings of birds range from the delightfully cute to the decidedly sinister. Spacious backgrounds and muted colors focus the eye on the birds themselves, creating a felling of beauty and melancholy tinged with unease.
The distinctive, often humorous non sequitur titles of the paintings juxtapose the purity of nature with the banality and bizarreness of modern human existence, adding unexpected humor, tension and an energy that infuses and elevates the imagery.
The contents of this book guarantee you will never look at birds the same way again.
