More about this artwork

The painting portrays a whimsical, anthropomorphic figure with the body of a woman and the head of a bird, possibly a cuckoo, given the title. The figure is dressed in a vibrant red dress with a spade (♠) motif at the abdomen and stands against a pastel purple background spotted with various symbols such as keys, birds, stars, and cross-like figures which are scattered whimsically. The bird-headed woman wears a lacy collar and her eyes are represented by a simple blue dot. Adjacent to her, on the right, is a smaller, shadowy figure resembling a silhouetted person or a bear, who appears to be waving. Below this floating scene is a serene blue segment, suggesting water, dotted with white accents that may portray rocks or splashes. In the lower section, right beneath the main figure, a heart shape and the artist's signatory "Inesa" are prominently displayed. This painting merges dreamlike elements with bold, expressive colors to convey a vivid, fairy-tale quality.

For graphic artist Inesa Gervė, the colourful world of painting is closer to her heart than black and white.

She has been fascinated by fairy tales and illustrations since she was a child, and now she sometimes feels halfway between her childhood and the present. Her work depicts crumbs of dream memories, unspoken feelings and thoughts, identification with the leaf, the grass, the moonlight... For man is a small part of a big nature.

It is a kind of protest of the artist against the vanity, superficiality and consumer culture around her. For Inesa, art is a placebo from the grey everyday life, and only for a small circle of people, not for the masses, it is understandable to the core.
