Resident Birds

Carrie Marill

Carrie Marill’s disarming artworks explore the artist’s fascination with the medium of goauche on paper. These works represent a variety of approaches to the curiosities of urban life in the context of the natural world. 

Most projects involve intricate representations of birds and plant life that transcend the mundane and become striking portraits. Resident Birds is comprised of several representations of the birds she witnessed while at a recent artist residency in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
