Birds of a Feather by Marsha Schuld

November 9, 2019 - January 5, 2020

Birds of a Feather by Marsha Schuld

Marsha Schuld of Rush Lake, SK, presents an exhibition of paintings portraying birds from southern Saskatchewan. The naturalized bird images reference the ornithological tradition of bird illustration for study and appreciation. While the bird images are naturalized the environment in each painting is abstracted. Each bird portrait floats in a field of gold, pewter, or silver gild. The portrait surrounded in golden light is a reference to the tradition of the sacred icon found in the history of painting. A practise reserved for the most important and celebrated in spiritual belief systems. This artist is implying the iconic and sacred value of these birds. Simultaneously the natural bird can be seen as engulfed in an environment of gold and silver – a reference to wealth or money and the ongoing encroachment of industrialization.

Marsha Schuld became an artist through independent research and practise of the past 30 years. She has Orange Tree Studio on her farm near Rush Lake SK. Marsha has exhibited extensively and has work in corporate, private and public collections internationally.
