About the artwork:
THE NIGHT PATROL I: FROM LAST LIGHT – TILL THE GLOWING OF DAWN
(From Last Light)
LOCATION: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
The night patrol is a two-part piece that follows the pride male lion’s daily patrol of his territory from the last light of the evening dawn till the glowing of dawn where he emerges from his patrol.
From Last Light captures the moment, where the last of the golden light set ablaze his glowing eyes;
His torches through the inky blue wanderings.
A land steeped in crisp abyss,
Where one’s shadow retreats to become one with its owner.
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.
