"North American Birds"
Janina A. Larenas is a printmaker and book artist who works with a variety of mediums to create narrative imagery. Her pieces range from stickers and posters to science illustration, embroidery to zines, often merging technical crafts with fine art presentation. Her current exhibit, North American Birds is a series of over 30 paintings of birds from the North American Bird Room at the American Museum of Natural History. Unlike natural science museum displays that are made to look true to life, these birds were prepared as specimens, stretched out flat and stuffed with white wool. The effect is haunting.
