Limited Edition A3 print in Float Mount off white glass frame
From the collection 'Wintering'
Inspired by the W.B. Yeats poem ‘He reproves the Curlew’
Part of the ‘Wintering’ collection. A visitor to this island, the Curlew’s loud screeching was believed to have brought stormy weather. A wary bird, with an alarmingly significant dwindling in its numbers due to increased afforestation & agricultural improvements, the curlew is under severe threat & is the only Irish bird on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
The Curlew’s distinctively long drawn out cry gave way to a long-established belief that it whistled for rain. Its lament was said to be a sign of broken weather to come and its plaintive cry so intense & low, it’s been mistaken for an alarm call of a shipwreck. It’s no wonder W.B. Yeats, in the embrace of nature, saw its rising lament as a reminder of his lost love.
