UK-BASED MARCELA TRŠOVÁ FINDS FREEDOM IN FLIGHT

This week we would like to introduce you to artwork by UK-based artist Marcela Tršová. Interested in the connections and differences between our inner and outer experiences, Tršová creates artworks that are flush with symbolism – web gallery. Her 2011 work titled “Messengers” hopes to capture the freedom inherent in the flight of our feathered friends. Tršová used crow feathers, copper wires and magpie feathers to create magnificent avian structures that capture the essence of flight.

“Flight has always represented freedom from the physical restrictions of earthbound life and the ascent of the soul to the goods [sic] either through a mystical experience or through death.”

“Birds share something of the same symbolic meaning, but because they come from the skies they can also assume the role of messengers from higher powers[…], whether for good or ill.”- Marcela Tršová
