No More Zebra Crossing ~ 02

Inspiration

As the slaughter of our precious wildlife continues in our beautiful Nature Reserves, I could not help but wonder what difference I as an individual could make in combating this awful practice, committed by heartless poachers. Aside from quitting my day job, and personally signing up to join an Anti-Poaching unit, the only other option I was really left with was to make that donation of small change to those dedicated folks who man a table in your local shopping mall, and for the most part seem invisible to all who pass bye. But fortunately, and as a direct result of an Art Project initiated by my USA based Art Coach, namely Sebastian Michaels, I was able to find a more meaningful way in which to potentially make a more significant contribution to a very worthy cause. I refer more specifically to the donation of two of my Artworks specifically created for "The Black Mambas" Anti-Poaching unit based in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. www.blackmambas.org/ These Artworks have been well received by the marketing team who manage all the fund-raising campaigns for "The Black Mambas". It is their intention to market these two works in their Curio Shops based in the Kruger National Park, and also incorporate the said works in their marketing communications as deemed appropriate. Besides the fact that any proceeds raised as a result of the sale of prints via the various outlets will benefit the Anti-Poaching unit, I have also taken "the bull by the horns" (pun intended), and in so doing, I will market these Artworks in the following two Galleries. In both above cases, I will be donating 100% of my Artist Fee to "The Black Mambas" resultant from any revenue received on the sales of these two Artwork. The core imagery, namely the Zebra's, was captured by myself at the Rietvlei Nature Reserve just outside Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa last Saturday morning. The balance of content which was added to the composites included further photographic imagery captured by myself, for example the "chess pieces" in "No More Zebra Crossing ~ 02". This was intended to be a subtle suggestion that we should "stop playing games" with our wildlife, and hence the addition of the countdown from 11 too zero as depicted in the composition. In both cases, I have also referenced some skeletal remains drawing further attention to the tragic and senseless loss of our treasured wildlife. We need to stand together to and defend our helpless wildlife, because to consider the question, "can you remember when we still had zebra?" is just simply to heartbreaking to even contemplate.
