About the Artist

The art throughout this site is from Los Angeles artist Harriet Zeitlin’s Bird Series 2011-2012.
Widely exhibited, Ms Zeitlin has been working for over 50 years. In recent years her work’s distinctiveness comes from how she works with what she calls “found objects”, in this case mainly palm fronds and some driftwood.
We chose her work because as she redefines form and function for these found objects, she forces us to go past the limitations of ordinary perceptions and guides us to a larger view. We also found birds an evocative symbol of how meditation can help us transcend the everyday world.
