The Denis Gonchar Flying Birds series depicts aerial movement among owls, eagles and hawks. The Ukranian artist has opted to include solid geometric backdrops in order to showcase the fowl, hence his chunky strips of teal, mustard yellow and dark brown.
Feathers are conveyed to viewers via thick brush strokes. The square-like slabs of paint convey movement, making it appear as if the birds are actually flying in the multi-colored portraits. This perspective showcases the beauty of flight as the wings extend in each painting, some of which directly face forwards while others are tilted sideways.
Beaks, claws, eyes and talons are also central to Flying Birds. In addition to the depiction of feathers, Gonchar further captures birds in their corporeal entirety.
