About The Artwork

I am investigating the complex relationship between humans and animals. In the history of art one sees this animal/human story as hugely complicated; animals are loved, revered, worshipped, protected, feared, hunted, eaten, enslaved, tortured, studied, dissected and sacrificed. In the 21st century the story continues to evolve. Enter the ethicists, biologists, climate change scientists and environmentalists, all with a clarion call to respect our natural world, including all the life forms that co-exist with us. Loss of habitat, loss of biodiversity and the ever-growing presence of man-made elements in our environment are more than deeply troubling. As William Cronon writes: “We need to embrace the full continuum of a natural landscape that is also cultural, in which the city, the suburb, the pastoral, and the wild each has its proper place, which we permit ourselves to celebrate without needlessly denigrating the others.” **
