paper birds : anna-wili highfield

annawilihighfield-2 Anna-Wili Highfield, from Sydney, makes these bird sculptures from different types of paper--torn, watercolor, egg cartons--all sewn together to produce these lifelike creatures. The birds (owls, pigeons, kookaburras) look like drawings come to life. Some of these images remind me of the Chris van Allsburg drawing where a bird is seen peeling off from the wallpaper.
