Syrinx is a joint exhibition between Alison Wilson and Dominic Fondé, two British artists who met while living and working in Singapore. The project came about through a shared interest in birds and a passion for visual arts. Both artists use drawings as the starting point for their work but explore the imagery further by using printmaking techniques and glass engraving to add layers of depth, meaning and atmosphere.
The title for this exhibition is Syrinx, a word used to describe the vocal apparatus of a bird. The works created for this show feature images of birds local to Singapore, such as the Koel and Kingfisher, birds that are critically endangered such as the Bali Starling and birds renowned for their song such as the Mocking Bird and Nightingale.
