CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
The inspiration for this piece came as I was working on a WWF project, 3890 Tigers. We visited London Zoo, where I encountered this beautiful Sumatran Tiger called Jae Jae. As I watched him, he locked eyes with me unexpectedly and paused. Time stood still and it gave me this unique sense of something quite primal and ancient. As if I had accessed a sacred part of our shared animal roots fostering an inherent deep respect and admiration for these creatures.
