About the artwork:
LOCATION: TSAVO NATIONAL PARK, KENYA
African Nomadic Bull Elephant
The nomad explores a momentary pause in the life of a nomadic bull elephant, at a junction between past and present in the wilderness.
My path leads me,
On towards the river’s run and blades of green.
An ever searching and ever moving quest,
For fertile lands and faces friendly.
For glancing back I recollect on memories made,
And moments with friends that now fade.
As life beckons out to me,
I turn to face the survival destined by she.
Under rounded prints I must move forward,
On this meaningful march of mine.
About the artist:
As an artist my work is more than portraiture of an animal; instead, my mission is to convey a glimpse, a momentary pause into the life of that being.
My visual palette and poetic narratives draw inspiration from eastern wisdom of the auras and spirit, which reflect our emotional energy and signify our vibrancy of life. This influence is utilised to highlight the unifying force/soul, which resides equally in all beings and transcends the material form.
Through this journey, I explore the deeper connections that run spiritually, emotionally and experientially between all beings.
Through my art I express the lives around us as a part of us; in the same way that we are all part of what Ancient Greek teachings term Gaia: the complex living being that is Mother Earth.
