In this painting, an owl perches solemnly atop a skull, creating a captivating and thought-provoking image. The owl, often associated with wisdom and knowledge, represents the enigmatic nature of life and death. Its watchful gaze and stoic presence convey a sense of introspection and contemplation. The skull, a symbol commonly associated with mortality and the transient nature of existence, serves as a reminder of our mortality and the impermanence of life. This painting compels viewers to reflect on the cyclical nature of life, the fleetingness of our time on Earth, and the potential for wisdom to emerge from contemplating our own mortality.
Bringing all your favourite things to life, from that pair of converse sneakers you wear every day to your most precious teacup, and pairing them with some of the most endangered animals in the world, Gillie and Marc are giving a unique perspective on the things we consider to be most important. Inspired by pop artists such as Andy Warhol and mixed with beautifully realistic animals using their iconic thick texture painting style, this Pop Realism collection is bringing the wild into our lives in a striking yet joyous experience.
Over the past five years, Gillie and Marc spent hours sketching and studying wildlife, travelling the globe to meet these animals up close. These sketches have now been brought to life in vibrant colour with love and passion. Each painting is created as a team with both the artists bringing their own emotion into every painting.
Please note: All canvases come stretched and ready to hang, however if you would like your painting to be framed, Gillie and Marc are happy to provide this service for you at your request. For framing enquiries please email us.
It is important to keep your painting out of direct sunlight and not to lean anything against the surface of the canvas. If it gets dusty, it can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth.
