Polar Opposites - Made of You
I chose animals pairs who come from very different places, or who are opposites in form, size, energy or in how they move through the world.
While naming the individual pieces I realized that despite their differences, these animal friends also have something linking them together.
While painting I thought about the interconnectedness of all creatures, about how we’ve been taught that evolution is about competition and “survival of the fittest” and how scientists have now discovered that in fact it is cooperation and mutually beneficial relationships that allow species to thrive.
We learn from each other by recognizing the strengths in our diverse forms.
