EDITION / 25
Created by Jane Lee McCracken for the major exhibition Making Paradise: Exploring the concept of Eden through Art & Islamic Garden Design 2021 at the Aga Khan Centre Gallery, London, Dear Hoopoe is the first design for her ceramic tile diptych which features her original Biro drawings.
Inspired by Attar's 12th century poem The Conference of the Birds, Dear Nightingale depicts one of the world’s most famous songbirds. The tile pattern Jane chose as the foundation of this design is from Shah-i-Zinda and entwined with roses which symbolise the nightingale’s representation in the poem as the lover. However the nightingale known for its alluring song remains tight beaked as it listens to the Hoopoe’s words. Interlaced through the pattern is a Green Peafowl which represents another member of the avian cast, the peacock. Jane selected this species as they too are exquisite yet unlike the peacock, they are endangered, which reflects her interest in threatened species. Also featured is a Dead Sea Sparrow and a Turtle Dove another species that is listed globally as vulnerable.
Jane's meticulous drawings take several months to research and make. Sumptuous signed and numbered limited edition archival pigment print, made by one of the very best printmakers in the industry.
