'Bang!', Siberian Tiger, 2013 Black Biro Drawing

'Bang!', Siberian Tiger, 2013 Black Biro Drawing

Original black Biro drawing ‘Bang!'. This is the second drawing of her ‘Siberian Tiger’ diptych and one of eight designs from her iconic print and china series ‘In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia'. It highlights threatened and endangered carnivores across the Eurasian continent. ‘Bang!’ pays homage to the elusive Siberian Tiger and symbolises why they are threatened. Stalking out of the white page, the magnificent tiger is unknowingly being watched. A tiger skull layered with imagery of revolutionary soldiers, portrays the initiating circumstances that lead to the rapid decline in population of the Siberian Tiger. Jane's meticulous drawings take several months to research and make.


Limited edition 50 x 50cm archival pigment prints available from SHOP




FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT SYMBOLISM
Inspired by photographs Jane took of her television as a recording of 'Amba the Russian Tiger' (Gordon Buchanan, 2008) played on screen, the skull with symbolic bullet hole suggests that the wading tiger in 'Shh, it's a Tiger!' is watching the tiger in 'Bang!' being fired upon by a hunter.
