McGlennon’s parrots stand in opposition to the cultural roles that have been mapped out for these birds. They are not subject to human whims, nor obliged to play the comedian to an audience. In these impossibly sharp-focused vignettes they appear as indigenous warriors standing guard over their ancestral lands, their plumage exhibited with pride and defiance. They are lords and guardians of the bush overseeing the grand, Romantic spectacle of life returning from the ashes.

John McDonald, 2020
