I recently attended a fundraiser where I won my first ever raffle prize! I never win anything, I enter, but I never win. This time I won big. I won my first piece of original art. The work I won is by the artist Sarah Pratt, it’s entitled “Mr and Mrs Skellington”. I absolutely love it, but I didn’t know the artist, so I decided to do some digging to find out more about her art.
Sarah Pratt in an interview talking about her fascination with birds:
“I like to imagine them in conversation with other strange creatures and puppets. I still find the idea that odd things happen when we’re not looking. I think there is an interesting tension created when placing living animals and inanimate objects in the same environment; they seem to rub off on one another, the animals becoming more inanimate, and the objects seeming to come alive.”
The more I read about this artist the more I liked. As a child I believed that the things in my room had lives of their own and would do all sorts of ridiculous things when I wasn’t there. The same goes for animals. I often find myself daydreaming about what they talk about, (because all animals talk, right, like in the movies). Do they argue? What about, what do they think of us?
