Ambushed Haven

Finalist

Oil on canvas, 100cm x 100cm

A human skull floats, submerged amongst a disconcerting array of birds and organic shapes. Sporadic netted elements add to the atmosphere of entanglement and claustrophobia within a picturesque scene of germinating organisms and fluttering butterflies. A narrative is woven as the natural world collides with our humanity’s metaphorical incarnation.
