Final Piece 2017


A Level Artwork - Part 1,

This piece represents the UK's plans to re introduce red squirrels into the England. Currently, red squirrels are only restricted to certain areas like the Isle Of Wight, Poole Harbour islands and a few more areas. The reason they no longer live all over the UK is because of the grey squirrel, dominating land, taking food and spreading disease that is fatal to red squirrels. Recently there has been plans to reintroduce the red squirrel to England, as well as pine martins who happily co-exist along side red squirrels - and more importantly prey on grey squirrels.

This half of my final piece represents they decay of the grey squirrel population should these plans be successful. It is intended to be the opposite of the red squirrel in part 2, the delicate piece shows how they will no longer dominate the red squirrels and how they have failed to hold on to their territory.
(It all fits in with the artists work I've studied this past school year I'm not insane I swear haha)

This piece was made using a biro pen, coffee and some watercolours mixed in to create it's signature grey tones.

Wow. Just wow. That is fantastic. And such a unique idea as well!

I-C-Art responds:

Oh my gosh thank you! I worked really hard all year to eventually come up with this idea, it goes hand in hand with my other piece of a robotic red squirrel which all relates to the artists I've studied. The piece represents red squirrels eventually being able to live in most parts of the UK again as they grey squirrels took over. So the mechanical side represents the rising above and looking to the future while the decaying grey squirrel shows how it will no longer dominate the land - in case you were curious about the symbolism, very weird I know haha

This artist has not been scouted yet.
