Where The Wild Things Were
My 2013 painting ‘The tiger’, mocked-up as a cover for William Stolzenburg’s Where The Wild Things Were. The title tells you all you need to know. First published in 2008, it painted an alarming picture of the state of collapsing ecosystems across the entire planet. And that was ten years ago. The situation has got much much worse in the subsequent decade. We are now living in the sixth mass extinction event that we know of in this planet’s history. Past extinction events were triggered by cataclysms such as comet strikes. This one is down to us.
