Burley’s Sail Away is a depiction of birds and boats, which are paper cuts from the edges of other monoprint used in a collage. The colours inspired the subject. The sail boats and birds are on their own voyage and the picture can also be seen as an experimental voyage in using things that would often go to waste.
