This series was part of the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (Little Karoo National Art Festival) 2014.
The artist looked at the awe-inspiring ways that wild creatures have adapted and evolved over eons to best survive the stresses and ‘turmoil’ of their natural environment: from diverse variations of patterning or careful body coloration that allow them to melt into their habitat, to ways in which they are able to move soundlessly, unheard by prey or predators.
Transferring these visual adaptations from creatures onto human figures is really an observation of how we as individuals, and as a society, can find an endless variety of ways to creatively evolve. We can, and we must, in order to grow and survive.
