My pet society finches inspire this piece. These birds live in close quarters and rely on cooperation and cohabitation. Inspired partly by a Janus head, the composition places two contrasting personalities on one body.
This original artwork was designed, carved, and printed by Lyell Castonguay. Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Stonehenge Paper. Multiple carved blocks layer colors, resulting in a dramatic effect. The artwork is signed, titled, and numbered in pencil by the artist.
