Title: "Keeper of the Boreal Forest"
Medium: Graphite Drawing and Silkscreen on Birchwood
Size: 18"x24" on 2" cradle
This original artwork is apart of a series depicting Species At Risk within Canada and intended to create conversation about conservation. Caribou are currently listed as threatened with some specific herds listed as endangered. They are indicator species, meaning they are the canary in the coal mine notifying us of the overall health of an entire ecosystem. And if this species is struggling, due to human influences and climate change, that means an entire environment that supports a diverse range of thousands of species, that supplies humans with fresh air and clean water, and that is the foundation for life as we know it is also struggling.
As individuals we have a role in causing climate change, and we also have a role is creating change and protecting the planet.
This piece was created over 25+ drawing hours into the caribou and with 5 hand-drawn silkscreen layers for the teal geometry. The artwork is mounted on a 2" cradle (please see image of the back of the piece) which allows for easy hanging. The piece is also finished with a UV protective varnish which will keep the colors perfect over time or in sunlight and also allow easy cleaning of the piece if needed.
This piece is available smaller prints, also indivdually done by hand in 2 sizes (please see other listings for these): 10"x12" or 5"x7"
