Great Birdfield

Great Birdfield , 2010. 40 cm x 33 cm. 2-block print on Somerset paper in an edition of 40 .

Birds fly through my hedge.
They land . They rise . Look at them
writing in the sky

Between the 2 giant ESB poles , the circling birds and the patterned cut field - there'a lot of writing going on here on Stephen Curtin's very contoured field.

The title is a joke reference to the home village of Edward Bawden , that great gentleman of Linocutting , whose bold style gives me much pleasure , and whom I had the good fortune to meet several times .
