Avian Sculptures

by John Revill


The principal theme of Mr. Revill's work is the bird. These are not the birds you will find feeding in your backyard or paddling in the local pond. Rather, they are the fanciful creations of an artist who is enchanted by the winged beings around us. Mr. Revill's birds are expressed in a multitude of forms in bronze and painted wood. Inspiration for his work is wide-ranging: from Inuit and African sources, to quasi-mechanical representations of our feathered friends. The work will delight and amaze you, and you won't view birds quite the same way ever again. Mr. Revill lives in Eastford, Connecticut, where in addition to creating bird sculptures, he raises Ilamas.
