The Wood Panel Series are studies in minimal abstraction completed during a Covid 19 lockdown. Made up of photographs of the immediate environment that have been digitally manipulated, often to the point of destruction. These distorted shapes have then been cut and paste onto warm wooden surfaces, juxtaposing the potential and limitations of virtual with the home-made quality of modernist collage.
"[These collages] blur the line between second and third dimensionality. Combining crisp, architectural lines with a balanced, earthy palette, Bird distorts notions of reality, physicality and the digital realm, whilst highlighting the tension between interior and exterior, the personal and the universal."
