Owlbert by Meghan Allbright

On September the 5th, I was traipsing around Birmingham City Centre searching for fibreglass owls. One I found was number 48: Owlbert by Meghan Allbright.

Meghan Allbright is a  Birmingham-based artist, who describes herself as having a ‘magpie-like’ way of making – often using packaging designs, re-appropriated imagery and a glut of materials to create works that are loosely based on systems and hierarchies.

Her painting style uses a similar technique of layering and mapping.  She collects children’s book illustrations, alongside more industrial imagery, (such as chimneys, pylons and cogs) to create ‘suspended’, dreamlike landscapes.  A random application of paint is built up and then drawn into – creating a blur of imagery that merges real with fiction.
