Broken Feathers, New Series by Aimée Van Drimmelen
We feel lucky to share a city with artist Aimée Van Drimmelen, and couldn’t be happier to introduce you to her latest series: ‘Broken Feather’. Aimée’s work in this series is ongoing. The editions we’ve released were created between 2013-2015 with acrylic drawing ink and tea on Arches watercolour paper. When we asked Aimee for some insight into these pieces, she came back to us with the following ‘words about birds’:
‘Broken Feather’ is a series of abstract birds that float somewhere between fantasy and reality. A puzzle to figure out, the subject is revealed one mark at a time, a slow process whereby shape and flow are observed and dictate what comes next. They stare out at the viewer as if surprised by their own existence. Suddenly on the page, as if pulled from another time and place mid-motion. Not trapped, but displayed for all to see.
