Stunning Collages Made From Audubon’s Birds Of America

Alison Kendall Swearingen draws from her training as a marine biologist and science illustrator to reflect upon technical mastery and resilience of the natural world.

To create this series she spent many hours disarticulating a book of Audubon’s Birds of America, before reassembling the cut-out images into surreal paintings and collages which explore the place of nature in the face of industrialisation and technological advancement.

Alison’s paintings and illustrations have appeared in Scientific American, Harvard University Press, college textbooks, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary installations and Bay Area galleries.
