In this thought-provoking painting, an endangered rhino is depicted sitting atop a lemon, creating a striking image that holds profound symbolism. The rhino, a symbol of strength and vulnerability, represents the plight of endangered species and the urgent need for conservation. Its choice to perch on a lemon, a symbol of freshness and vitality, suggests the delicate balance between life and survival. The juxtaposition of the gentle, yet powerful rhino on the fragile lemon speaks to the fragility of our ecosystem and the interconnectedness of all living beings. This painting serves as a poignant reminder of the critical importance of preserving our natural world and the responsibility we have in protecting endangered species from extinction. It prompts viewers to reflect on the urgent need for environmental stewardship and the impact of our actions on the delicate balance of life.
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.
