I know that the trend of scale and feather motifs has been going on for a long time now, and that it has appeared in my own work from at least as long ago as 2007, but I don’t get tired of it, and I don’t think I’ve posted about it before.

Here are some pieces I have seen recently that are really beautiful an interesting to me.

Casey Porn, Stephen Hawking, from the series Weird Science, currently on view at Artspace in Raleigh

Amy Flurry and Nikki Salk of Paper Cut Project, Owl from the Animalia series

Julia Rothman, Pebblecones wallpaper design

Helen F. (I didn’t record the full name of this talented artist/designer whose work was in my inspiration folder), this pigeon was part of a larger installation in a gallery in the UK.

Tina Berning (who I posted about here), for Vogue
