Improbable, beautiful, as though I had wings  2021
paper collage
51 x 41 cm

I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable, beautiful and afraid of nothing, as though I had wings.

― Mary Oliver

This collage honours human connection to the natural world. Guided by intuition, ancestors and wings of her own creation, this woman is at one with the wilderness that surrounds her and the untamed self within. In silent communion between herself and the world, she knows the wildness, the boundlessness of both.

— Rachel Derum
