Angela Robertson-Buchanan, Regent Parrot Feather Study 1. Photographic montage on fine art matte paper, edition of 20, 59.4 x 84.1 cm

A serene study in simple graphics, negative space and the organic beauty of nature. The calmness of this work would make it ideal for a children’s bedroom, the bold bursts of colour making the work age-appropriate as the child grows. I would furnish the room with natural wood tones and soft linen to harmonise with the subject.

This work creates an inviting contrast between intricacy and simplicity. With the use of a stark white background, the feathers are viewed as an artefact. Place this in a lounge area or large bedroom for a contemporary take on a traditional subject.

Angela’s study of parrot feathers sensitively captures their natural light and luminosity. Forming part of a collection, it would sit well with Indigenous seedpods or a nest. The collection would be great housed in Muuto’s stacked box storage system, coupled with a Grey felt Organic Highback chair from Vitra and an Old Yarn PomPom rug from Loom.
