Bird Loss Heart Attack

Now comes artist Morgan Bulkeley with a book that includes both recent paintings and a selection of bird-themed poems from a wide diversity of writers including Lydia Davis, W.S. Merwin, Farid Al-Din Attar, Pablo Neruda and Elizabeth Kolbert.

Below follows the opening essay, based on an interview with Bulkeley, and a flight of three paintings. “I am not aiming at what Fuertes was after, perching birds in gorgeous landscapes. I am setting birds in turmoil and danger, the way I feel it, in irrational, clamorous, chaotic human-scapes.”

We are bibliophiles here at DP, and deeply appreciate the quality of the book itself: cloth bound, sewn, and with the paintings beautifully reproduced on quality paper. From an exceptional artist, an exceptional book, to which we give our highest recommendation.
