Birds Nest II

By Marc Alexander from his ‘The Secret Forest’ exhibition. Birds Nest II, oil and silver leaf on board, 17cm by 17cm, (2014).


Birds Nest II

A tightly woven nest baring 3 silver speckled eggs, high up in the treetops and safe from predators. Warming in the afternoon sunlight. Mother within earshot instinctively keeping a watchful eye over her precious treasure – never to be seen or touched by human hands. Spring has finally sprung and new life will soon emerge deep in the forest, where nobody goes.


The Secret Forest

Inspiration for this body of work stems from my love and gratitude toward God for His marvellous creation, which has enthused within me an interest in forestry, particularly its aspects of conservation and regeneration.

The Secret Forest is a paradise of my imaginings, wondrous and alive with many fascinating forms of life. I have often gotten lost in its wooded beauty, trailing shadowy pathways and streams, searching every nook and cranny amongst tangled root systems and mossy rocks just so that I can feast my eyes on its hidden treasures. This is a place where the feral imagination could easily envisage the likes of, elves and tree Ents – a place entirely unspoiled by mankind and the age of machines.
