Gifts of Art presents Birdpants: Mixed Media
Missy Orge creates work that is evocative of scientific curiosities and mounted butterflies, with a humor that sneaks up and inspires a much closer look. Her current work focuses on birdpants Ì¶ tiny, ornithologically correct pants that “could be for backyard visitors who are either fashion-forward or simply chilly in the Michigan winter." She employs traditional craftwork such as quilting, embroidery and beading to produce highly detailed Ì¶ and decidedly non-traditional Ì¶ confections that encourage the viewer to consider the possibilities of enticing a chickadee to don a pair of slacks. Making Ann Arbor her home for more than 20 years, she spends her spare time filling bird feeders in the hope that, one day, she can talk a songbird into modeling her creations.
