About the artwork:
THE NIGHT PATROL II: FROM LAST LIGHT – TILL THE GLOWING OF DAWN
(Till The Glowing Of Dawn)
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.
Till The Glowing Of Dawn captures our pride male’s return.
The patrol comes to an end as the light grows and the morning sun rises.
With the glow of a new dawn,
The guardian of the territory returns to his abode.
Through the night he faced the bitter winds,
He sounded his call,
Alerted his rivals and stood true to his stature.
He remains dominant; he remains in reign and like an applause from his home ground,
He is greeted by the fiery glow of gracious morning dew on whistling reeds in the warming morning breeze.
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.
