(PT) Beija-flor de Nina Fraser
“‘Birdsong’ começou no início de 2014, quando um pequeno Goldcrest aparecia regularmente numa grande árvore conífera, do lado de fora da janela da minha cozinha. Fascinada pela maneira como parecia uma bola no inverno e na primavera voltava sempre muito mais magro. Tentei pintá-lo com o menor número de pinceladas possível. Descobri que a tinta Indiana era o material mais eficaz. Aprendi a pintar nesse estilo, influenciada pelas pinturas zen japonesas. A partir desse pequeno começo nasceu o Birdsong. “ Nina Fraser

‘Birdsong’ began in early 2014 when a tiny Goldcrest regularly appeared in a large conifer tree right, outside my kitchen window. Fascinated by the way he resembled. A ball in the winter and returned in the spring looking so much thinner. I attempted to paint him with as few brushstrokes as possible. I discovered Indian Ink was the most effective material. Taught myself to paint in this style, influenced by Japanese Zen paintings. From this small beginning Birdsong was born. ” Nina Fraser
