Josie Morway’s Bird Paintings are Out of this World

Though wildlife portraits are rarely boring, artist Josie Morway knows how to make them extra exciting. Her paintings often have birds in them, along with interweaving plants.

Morway explained her style saying: “I don’t mean for them to be read too literally, but rather hope they lend a certain feeling of portentousness to the pieces. I like referencing religious icon paintings and other forms of ‘serious’ historic painting, but using animals and birds in the place of saints, etc. I’m going for the feeling of narrative realism, but working with a narrative that’s mysterious, missing some information, open to the viewer’s interpretation.”
