Through a process akin to alchemy, Emily Valentine creates a new language and new life forms using feathers and mixed media.

Cockadors, Mynoxers, Rozelladors and genically modified planes and rockets are brought to life through the use of base forms and locally sourced feathers.

Valentine’s work goes a step beyond due to the nature of feathers. Our familiarity with the original is askewed and intrigue regarding the process is raised.

Exquisitely crafted, these sculptural hybrids capture past life and propose a surreal future.

To arrange an appointment to view or for media images, please call 0417 235  916 or contact the gallery via the website.
