Well Well

So here's my newer paintings. The photos are a little grainy I'm going to try to retake them today.
This is a companion to my Snake Scarf piece, it is a Giraffe Jacket, which speaks about how people use animals to their advantage. Not necessarily speaking about using animal fur as clothing but as a different type of fashion statement. People cloak themselves in an appearance of "caring" for the environment when many times they are just trying to be in the scene that is cool at the moment. People just go with what people tell them, without getting informed. It's good at the time but once a different fad comes along people won't care any more, they'll take their cloak off and wear something else.

This was in the blank show, it's about the loss of animals, and I used a ghosted red gazelle to communicate the idea.
