“‘Deep Forest Birdsong’ explores what is seen in what is heard. When we listen to the songs of forest birds, we delight in their beauty, yet, as mere humans, their true meaning and significance will forever be lost to us. What these songs “look like” can only be revealed through the power of imagination.
Like most of my recent work, Deep Forest Birdsong started as a drawing, one which established both the linear structure of the forms as well as the value range. The painting consists of successive layers of transparent glazes followed by selective applications of opaque colors.” – Ketelhut
