CONNECTIONS SERIES: Emily & the Cheetah
Emily was a woman who worked with me for a short while. During this time she posed as the model for this particular painting. The inspiration behind the piece was the ever increasing number of conservation projects and in particular the cheetah protection, rehabilitation and breeding programmes that have taken off. This piece forms part of a series of paintings called, “Connections,” that explores the bizarre interactions that are happening between humans and animals as we become more closely linked in these types of situations. I called it Lady Minder as both subjects are female, so really who is minding whom.
