Each painting in the Cultural Cartography
depicts an aspect of the behavior of Red Knots at a particular location along their migration route. The paintings are arranged geographically, from the northern breeding range, across the migratory route to the non-breeding range in the south. Specific sites and behaviors where Red Knots stop to refuel during migration are also depicted.
The paintings are organized into 5 collections that correspond to each Red Knot subspecies' particular Flyway. Accompanying each painting is a brief text that further describes the bird behavior, along with information about the art and cultural influences referenced in the painting.
All paintings are acrylic paint on paper; 22 x 28 inches (55 x 70 cm) in dimension.
