Additional Information

That Fateful Day- I was inspired to create this work when I saw the Southern Gerenuk for the first time at the Denver Zoo. A creature I had previously never heard of. With its long neck and soft face, it is also known as the Giraffe Gizelle in its native range of the horn of Africa. Such a peaceful and graceful animal. It is Near Threatened in the wild.

My other character in this work is the Ring-tailed Lemur of Madagascar. These rambunctious creatures are so recognisable with their black and white striped tails and their depiction in children’s movies. Yet they are currently Endangered.

My work looks at the precarious situation our wild creatures find themselves in. I often pair up in my work animals that wouldn’t normally co-exist in the same space. What would the conversation be or would the silly Lemur just be foolish. The calm before the storm. The moment before extinction.

This work is varnished paper mounted on a birch panel with a hanging wire.
