Feather sculpture by Emily Valentine
Feather sculpture by Emily Valentine looks both artful and naturally realistic. The artist herself says that Feathers are her paint. Emily Valentine has developed her own technique and style working in this art for more than twelve years. The gallery of her feather creatures include fabulous beasts – colorful bird-like dogs and cats with wings, lizards, and even aeroplanes. Australian artist Emily Valentine says: “I wish to stimulate the viewer with the uncomfortable nature of the feather, to question our callousness treatment of animals and birds, and ask how we sub-consciously classify animals – pet or pest, valued or worthless, beautiful or plain and why”. Emily got her Bachelor of Arts (Visual), graduating from Sydney College of the Arts majoring in Jewellery and Object design. Feather sculptures by Emily Valentine were exhibited and awarded at numerous art exhibitions, mostly in Australia and New Zealand.
