Polar Bear Lost …

Feb 25

Here is ‘Ursus Maritimus Morocco’ , my first piece for the year.

Ursus Maritimus is the scientific name for a polar bear; the polar bear therefore is also the Maritime Bear as it spends a great percentage of its life in the ocean.  Today the polar bear is an animal symbolic of climate change and habitat loss. My bear is displaced; he roams the rocky desert landscape of Morocco in North Africa.

(I spent last December in Morocco and it is a beautiful and strange place – really inspired by the colours – Chefchaouen painting in the works yes yes.)

I’ve been working on this lonesome beast lately, playing with hazy white acrylic layers. London has such old and ominous/beautiful buildings, i stroll through them while the cold tries to bite off my fingers.

Rhinoceros Ruin In Progress

Rhinoceros Ruin In Progress

A rare and crumbling creature. Not usually spotted in a French sunflower field.

Although, the Wooly Rhino did graze throughout Europe in the Pleistocene until it was (proposedly) hunted into extinction by Neanderthan and early Human peoples…

I really love the strange, empty horizoned halfway point of this painting , so will show that here .

Insane French Rooster 2013

Insane French Rooster 2013

My new neighbour in rural France has a rooster. This rooster appears to be a touch deranged. He crows at the moon, he crows at the rain. He reminds me of Tom Waits.  He has been fun to paint.
