Habitat

 

Did you know that a bird’s habitat is often a signature of their identity?

 

We perceive birds as mobile, they can fly and travel as they please and they are seemingly everywhere, but do we ever take the time to think about where they live?

Each bird has a home, a habitat that has everything they need to survive, a specific composition and structure to which a species is well-adapted.

 

In current times, deforestation, urbanisation and climate change are modifying the places they call home. In Australia, numerous species that have not yet become rare enough to be listed as endangered, described as common or of least concern, are having their habitat chipped away at equally alarming rates as Australia's endangered species.

These species have not only intrinsic ecological value, but also have the right to exist. Common species are also the ones that we most associate with and because they are more abundant and familiar, they provide important opportunities for people to connect with nature.

In this exhibition we will explore and celebrate Australia's iconic, vulnerable and endangered birds and their homes.

Birdtown

The Corner Gallery, Stanmore (Sydney)

A collaboration with Fiona Roderick and Eggpicnic

This exhibition celebrates our urban birdlife.

 

With more than 80% of Australia’s population living in cities, it might not feel like there’s much room for nature. But a stroll through any Australian city proves there’s no need to go bush to get in touch with wildlife.  

 

However, with rapid urbanisation, they face a great challenge.  Many Australian bird species are declining in urban areas and declining overall.

 

It's more important than ever to research, protect and provide education on the urban birds that surround us. Now more than ever, on behalf of the living world, we need to feel like we belong here, on the planet. That this is our home, but it is not ours alone.

20% of exhibition sales donated to BirdLife Australia.

We raised a total of $2880.

Parrots

The Corner Gallery, Stanmore (Sydney)

 

A collaboration with Fiona Roderick and Eggpicnic

 

Australia is home to 56 species of parrot.  

Only 5 of these are found elsewhere in the world. 

There are 300 species of parrot worldwide.

 

This exhibition celebrates all things parrots. 

Each art piece has a conservation story and a fact about the bird featured.  

 

We hope after viewing you will have a better understanding and respect for these unique birds and the next time you see a particular species you will marvel at their intelligence and playfulness.

20% of exhibition sales were donated to BirdLife Australia.  We raised $2525.10

Little Birds

 The Corner Gallery, Stanmore (Sydney)

 

A collaboration with Fiona Roderick and Eggpicnic

What are your first thoughts when you think of Australian birds?

The crazy Cockatoos screeching and soaring through the sky? Magpies with their tuneful song?

Or Kookaburras with their iconic cackle of ‘laughter’?

 

What about the little birds?

Often hiding out in dense woodland, camouflaged amongst the flowers, flitting though garden hedges, hiding from the “bossy” birds.

Little Birds celebrates the little birds of Australia. Some are in decline, some are losing vital habitat.

20% of exhibition sales were donated to BirdLife Australia.  We raised $2333.40.
