Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Inspired to express the delicate beauty of our wild places, and visually describe its fragility and how the wild world could simply fade away work 'Protect the Wild Places 2' emerged from deep within. As an intuitive artist , I find at times, agendas come to the fore.
In trying to put my thoughts about this piece into words, I came across
Aldo Leopold and his view on human existence. He was ahead of his time- he believed in a Land Ethic, where humans are but citizens of a land community. He advocated for humans to live in harmony with the land; in harmony with nature.
In his almanac, published a year after his death in 1948, he wrote:
“A land ethic changes the role of Homo sapiens from conqueror of the land community to plain member and citizen of it.”
He defines conservation as harmony between man and land.
I love his messages so much I’ve etched quotes onto the translucent red trees, which are symbolic of the human cost on nature, where forests and habitats are disappearing before our eyes.
"... Live in Harmony with Nature..."
"... Humans are but Citizens..."
"... Land is a Community ... to which we Belong..."
There are two versions of this piece, both available as limited edition reproductions: both speak of the same powerful message; but PTWP2 steps away from the delicate subdued original version with bold colour and contrast. The Original of PTWP2 is available

This piece is painted with professional artist quality paint, on quality stretched canvas, and finished with a light varnish for protection.
All edges are gallery wrapped, so framing is not required.
In situ artwork scale is approximate.
If this piece ticks all the boxes but isn't quite the right size, FINE ART REPRODUCTIONS are available.
