Catalogue Note

“As a child, you don’t intellectualise your passions - they wash over you. Fast-forward to being an adult and an artist: I found that the panda was a symbol that not only had deep personal relevance but also addressed larger issues. It’s a symbol that teaches us to revere nature, to tread lightly and compassionately” (Rob Pruitt cited in: 'Q+A with Rob Pruitt', Paddle 8, 12 February 2014, online).
