Extinctions Original Works

What does an amur leopard, a harlequin and a Nubian giraffe have in common? They’re all critically endangered. Researchers estimate that at current rates of extinction, half of Earth’s species will be extinct by 2050. An extinction event of this scale will impact the humanity in ways we can’t imagine.

Amur leopard

14” x 14”. Oil on canvas. The Amur leopard of Far Eastern Russia and northeastern China is critically endangered with only about 100 left in the wild. This painting combines two side-view images of the leopard, merged together as if they were one animal. This distortion is a metaphor for how everything is NOT alright in nature.

This painting shows two side views of the condor, one of which is dimmed, just as the species' presence has faded. A pair of condor eyes, distorted to look straight ahead, stare accusingly at us.
