On this page, you will find a selection of prints that have birds in them. Mostly drawn from memory, these images and concerns are as diverse as the artists who created them. Hanneke Benadé's delicate Serpentine Wreath depicts an indigenous vine and a dead sunbird which was found at the bottom of a kloof on the Machabeng Plateau in Limpopo. This print is poignant in that she worked on it following the death of her father. Sara Cao (a San artist from Botswana) often incorporates avian imagery in her paintings and has followed this through to the monoprints that she made at The Artists' Press. John Moore plays with the notion of flight and spirituality in his work. The gannets becoming intermediaries between the realms of earth and sky; the baboon figure amongst them can be seen as both lost and threatening. Joachim Schonfeldt has selected a peahen as one of his four female deities for a group of African goddess figures.
