A murder of crows part 1

A few years ago I exhibited etchings, lino prints and some collograph prints based on capturing the essence of the countryside in conjunction with the ever popular bird, the crow. The works represent memories of holidays spent with family near Pt Augusta and McLaren Vale and the bird that featured heavily in the landscape with its mournful craw and sleek black silhouette.


South Australians are also associated with the bird in that other states refer to us as crow eaters. How this came about is not definitely known but comes most probably from the early settlers to SA having to cope with a bad drought and needing to eat crows to survive. The name was reinforced by South Australians given that title during the Victorian Gold rush days in 1850's.


This group of prints focuses on the crow itself. I will post another set more focusing on the landscape with the crow in it in a week or so.
