The animalia series is the result of a wallpaper installation for Freedom, a former cabaret bar in London's Soho and site of Leigh Bowery's last stage perfomance. A trip to Paris had inspired me to re-imagine the 'ark' and the idea was taken on by Freedom's then Art Director, Roland Mouret.

On Earth today, the current mass extinction is the first to be brought about by a single species: homo sapiens, and the sixth to have cataclysmic impact on biodiveristy.

This series has been developed further as a boxed edition of etchings - please enquire for details.
