I want to live in Charley Harper's world. He called his style
minimal realism, wherein he captures his subjects (always from the natural world, and perhaps most powerfully birds) with the fewest possible visual elements. There is a quote from him that tells us all we need to know,
"When I look at a wildlife or nature subject, I don't see the feathers in the wings, I just count the wings. I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures. I regard the picture as an ecosystem in which all the elements are interrelated, interdependent, perfectly balanced, without trimming or unutilized parts; and herein lies the lure of the painting; in a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe"
Spark - I think you could use these birds on any sewing project with great success. But, I am especially fond of children's clothing made with his prints.
