Artist Mary Frank is fueled by her ever-present urge for direct and honest expression. Frank wants this piece, constructed from the curled bark of birch trees, to make viewers realize that birds were here long before humans. “I hope this birdhouse inspires viewers to fight hard against the extinction of birds,” says the artist.
Mary Frank (b. 1933, London) is a sculptor, painter, photographer, and ceramic artist, and a fierce advocate for human rights.
