Hands to Birds - Reed Weir

Hands with Lights are perfectly square. Each panel contains images of birds and hands. Within some the hands and birds become unified with the fingers of the human hand becoming wings. With this series of paintings I have added LED lights within the upper frame. This way the cut line of the plexi subtly becomes drawings of light that flit across the surface of the painting. These paintings while meant to be shown with the lights off have the potential and option to turn the piece into a carnival event. The reflections on the plexi and the changes of composition between the plexi surfaces and the revealed painting change when viewed from various angles creating a sculptural effect.
