Cactus Birds by Amy Noblitt


Your Art Here presents Cactus Birds by artist Amy Noblitt for the Billboard 101 project located in downtown Bloomington, 101 East 6th Street, Walnut/6th. The billboard will be mounted thru February 2008.

Artwork Statement

Cactus Birds was created in the wee hours one morning in the fall in a small double wide trailer in Bloomington, Indiana. The work was created on the floor of the living room and its subject matter and composition conceived spontaneously.

An urge to travel and a desire for exotic environs are shown through patterns and prevalent usage of color commonly used in paintings of the southwestern United States. This symbol is once again echoed in the images of many birds leaving their homes.

Artist Bio

Amy Noblitt was born in Indianapolis, IN in 1983. She grew up in Zionsville, Indiana. She is currently pursuing a Studio Art Degree at Indiana University as well as spending the spring and summer months traveling the earth by car, bike, and foot.
