Geometric Starling Murmurations

Following on from my last post, i’ve found this beautiful artwork…

Flocks by Catherine Ulitsky

In the photographs of European Starling flocks, I have painted connections between the birds to show the entire flock as a faceted geometric shape.

These images are gouache paintings on top of  photographs of murmurating starlings.

Aren’t they beautiful?

I love the contrast between the dulled, neutral colours of the sky and the intense bright colours of the lines. The geometric shapes created are both obviously man-made yet ultimately organic, which is such a wonderful idea to think of these shapes as natural when looking upon something so linear and structured.

Chloe out.
