Materials: Polychromos pencils, acrylics, 3D relief

Piece inspired by the genetic material shared between living beings.

Evolution final piece. Coloured pencil drawing of leopard face with red panda, tropical Amakihi bird and layered 3D pixels collaged into face.
The piece began by collaging a collection of my own animal and landscape photographs

The Concept

Layered and overlapping pixels represent the DNA and RNA which comprise all organisms, and the blurring of lines between species.
