Barred Owl Philadelphia Freedom

Barred Owl Philadelphia Freedom

Piece description from the artist

Please mute your hoots around this peaceful barred owl. It snores with a Philly accent.

The natural patterns found in the barred owl's feathers fascinate me. Their gorgeous feathers and their unusual qualities make them fantastic subjects for linocut printmaking.

My reaction would be very different, but for this barred owl, being perched on a tree branch in the middle of a snow storm in the forest doesn't rattle him.

This feathered Zen master's approach to life caught my eye, and I really liked combining the graphic owl image with the colors, highways, roads, cities, and boundaries in this upcycled map of Philadelphia.

Some elements of the map showed through, while others were obscured by the owl, adding to the mystery and excitement of the piece as you take a closer look. Enjoy!
