This portfolio is based on prints from John James Audubon's "Birds of America". The National Audubon Society generously made these digital files available online. Appreciating his legacy as one of America's foremost wildlife artists, I saw a potential to deconstruct these images and introduce ultra symmetry, transforming the original images into surreal, graphic compositions where the scientific content yields to the personal exploration of form, line and space.
