This unique piece incorporates both realism and abstraction, with Impressionist style brush strokes. The sculpted form of the colorful Macaw bird arises from breaking the image up onto five separate canvas boards, the largest being 11" x 14", stacked and mounted to each other using heavy bodied acrylic gel medium. The image twists and morphs over the canvas boards. The edges are painted, and in many areas the design carries over onto another board. In other areas the image disappears altogether, blending into the background of jungle foliage.
