Friday 27th September 2013. The Van Diemans Memento Mori Series.



Acrylic on board, 93.5cm x 62cm

Disturbed by the Tasmanian road kill, this series developed both to record and to provoke thought about the ramifications of man’s ever expanding footprint on the planet. Painted from life, the three Bennet’s Wallaby, Common Brushtail Possum and Southern Boobook were the total loss of life collected locally that morning.
