A world where birds are the main protagonists is the subject of photo and video artist Linda Girvin’s new work, “Devenir Ave—Becoming Bird,” which opens January 10 at the Centro Cultural El Nigromante (Bellas Artes).

Moving beyond the static bird portraits of John James Audubon’s era, Girvin engages the interplay between the light and pace of twenty-first century scanner technology, the bodies of found birds, and her intuitive touch in order to dissolve boundaries and transcend “still-life.” Her images draw us into the realms of life and death, love and sorrow, and the fine line between perceived reality and the dimensions of the spirit. These are confrontational works, intended to help us move to a place of emotional connection with the aspects of life and death that can never be explained through intellectual reasoning.

On Thursday, January 10, at 4pm, Girvin, a photo and video artist based in San Miguel de Allende and Aspen, will host a gallery talk and reception at the Centro Cultural El Nigromante (Bellas Artes) that will take us to a deeper understanding of the collaborative process she uses to create these works. She has had numerous museum and one-person shows around the country as well as in Germany, the Netherlands, and China. Collections and museums that have acquired her work include the Progressive Art Collection, The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Norton Museum of Art in Florida, and the US Department of State’s Art in Embassies Program. Her exhibition at Centro Cultural El Nigromante (Bellas Artes) continues through January 13, 2019.
