Detail of PUFFIN WRECK by MARY-ANN ORR ( Lunan Bay, 3rd May 2013)
The event of the March 2013 Puffin ‘Wreck’, was a powerful testimony to the devastation of Climate Change and the subsequent 83 Puffin Carcasses that I gathered on a stretch of beach less than a mile long presented itself as a metaphor for the intangibility of life. The sequence of drapes and veils separate the material substance of life from the ethereal . The pen and ink drawings represent not only my own, but every living creatures affinity to the natural world.
We share the same fate, death, we share the same planet- EARTH.
Mary-Ann Orr received an RGU Printmaking Purchase Award in 2013 for this work created as part of her Degree Show at Gray’s School of Art.
