'KABOOM WHERE DID ALL THE ANIMALS GO?', 2010 COLOUR BIROS 42cm x 60cm

'KABOOM WHERE DID ALL THE ANIMALS GO?', 2010 COLOUR BIROS 42cm x 60cm

During war, landscapes are destroyed, woods and forests blown up. What happens to the animals that inhabit these landscapes? Do most flee? Are many killed as their habitat is destroyed? Do they suffer post-traumatic stress or die from fear? The drawing features Jane's Nymphenburg white biscuit ‘Lying Stag’ designed by August Göhring in 1939, as if a delicate piece of Uranium glass the colour of the Emerald city in the film ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Creating a halo of wonderment, the stag is encountered in the beauty of an untouched forest but a photograph of the film ‘A Prophet’, 2009, Jacques Audiard where a herd of deer are caught in the headlights of a car before one of the deer is run over, represents the onslaught of war.
