Don’s Flamingos and Rhamandu’s Table

Mixed Media (plastic flamingo, light reactive granules, UV light, base)

An homage piece to Don Featherstone, the iconic pink plastic flamingo is seen by Munro as is the epitome of kitsch.  Bright pink by day, at night the flamingos come to life in vivid luminosity as they bath under UV light reflecting on the high shine surface of the pool. This work is accompanied by a soundtrack of hundreds of flamingo calls.

This work continues the experimental yet playful themes see in Gathering of Clans and Minnesota Gathering in which Munro experiments with UV reflective materials and light.
