"Pheasant – He’s the One"
Erika Schulz, "Pheasant – He’s the One," acrylic.
In 2009 Erika Schulz challenged herself to create one piece of art every day. An Alberta Aviary ended up being one of the series that she worked on during that year. Each painting has a strong Arts and Crafts influence, as well as an injection of Japanese aesthetic. Her drawing with paint technique was originally inspired by the mixed media gesso panels of Margaret MacDonald-Mackintosh, wife of Art Nouveau artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The surface of Schulz's paintings are built up by drawing a line of paint into patterns and objects, which are then painted, creating a layered, textured effect. The Aviary depicts a spectrum of native Alberta birds - some that Schulz sees every day and other that she wishes to see. They range from song birds and farm fowl, to raptors and scavengers, big and small.
