“The recent drawings of the sparrow and the white blackbird are the result of an ongoing fascination with birds, and their symbolism within our history and culture. The bird in flight is a symbol of freedom, particularly intellectual and creative freedom, but also has other meanings. This particular sparrow was drawn just after events in Paris. The symbolism is multi-layered, the common sparrow rising above. White blackbirds also exist, albinoism occurring in birds as in humans. The sighting of an animal so rare is taken as a portent of dramatic change and has magical connotations".
