Nesting, Michelle Ciarlo Hayes

From the Apart:Together Exhibition

This little piece is called “Nesting” and is based on a sweet bird who regularly visited the window box of my studio during the spring of 2020. She would steal pieces of the coconut box liner as well as bits of book paper that I’d swept off the studio floor and out into the yard. I imagine her little ones were very literate by the time they became fledglings and left their nest.
