‘Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather Boa!’ - Allen Ginsberg
Feathers; ornamentation, decoration, commodity and comedy.
If you have ever tried to pluck a turkey on Christmas Eve you will definitely get the comic reference if you haven’t then you will have to make do with the idea of the feather as something kinky. Feathers are seen as a luxurious ornamentation within clothing, an essential within household bedding, and ultimately a great treasure.
Throughout life we will see millions of feathers and feel millions more and never really appreciate their delicate beauty. As a child a feather is not only a great treasure, but a writing device, an object with which you can fly, or even assimilate Robin Hood. From the elegant beauty of the peacock’s feathers to the fluffy delicacy of the little Robin’s red breast feathers; feathers have a timeless place within our history. This collection of artworks is not only a celebration of these treasure
