Five-colour lithographic offset print on Fabriano bright-white 300gsm paper.
This work, especially made for my part of Of Birds and Fishes, is a printed collage piece called From this bed, with the wings of a bird, I flew to the sea as I slept last night. In this collage, there features owls, ducks and fish of all sizes. They swim and leap their way throughout the scene dictated by a theatre set by the painter Paul Nash. The set was created for a one-act play, The Truth About the Russian Dancers, written especially for the dancer Tamara Karsavina by J. M. Barrie. The play was first performed in 1920 at the London Colosseum. At the Savoy some six years later, the play was revived, and now it forms the backdrop to my dreams.
