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

This drawing contemplates what happens to animals inhabiting landscapes destroyed by explosive weapons, during war. The drawing features a Nymphenburg white biscuit ‘Lying Stag’ designed by August Göhring in 1939, depicted as a delicate piece of Uranium glass, symbolising the fragility of many eco-systems. The glass stag is the colour of the Emerald city from ‘The Wizard of Oz’, 1939. In a scene of tranquility the stag effects a green halo, which suggests the purity of encountering an untouched forest before destruction . A photograph of the film ‘A Prophet’, 2009, Jacques Audiard inspires a drawing layer of a herd of deer caught in car headlights. This layer which reflects the sequence within the film containing a deer being run over, symbolises the onslaught of war.
