This series depicts birds in the studio environment. It owes some homage to John James Audubon, the great 19th century naturalist and artist. In fact some of the images are drawn directly from his monumental book, The Birds of America. More importantly, however, they allude to a studio process not unlike Audubon's, that of bringing birds into the studio. We know Audubon observed nature in the wild, and hunted his subjects so that he could study them close up as a scientist and artist. Thanks to photography, Guerin's birds come to the studio digitally. They are mixed with other photographs on the computer, arranged into studio still life settings, re-photographed and used as a point of departure for the actual prismacolor pencil drawings.
