< Jumper >

In this print, the incident of a baby sparrow falling from the nest is depicted in a somewhat detached way,
maybe suggesting that the bird might have been too active for its own good. 
The sparrow is shown on its back with a crushed beak, broken wings and a brush of blood-like pink on its chest. 
Lines radiate out from the bird suggesting both the impact of the fall and the eventual disappearance
of the corpse as it is carried off, bit by bit, by flies and other insects. 
The prominent image of the fly, framed in the upper left hand corner,
indicates its significant role in cleaning up scenes of violence in the natural world.
