This was one of the most challenging and rewarding compositions of the first bird series. The dodo is perhaps the first species a person thinks of in reference to extinction. The phrase ‘Dead as a dodo’ is something we have all uttered at one point ,when referring to loss. The dodo was another species whose demise is directly linked to man’s interference of a once unique habitat. The colonisation of land, and the introduction of alien, domesticated species, destroyed the eco-system of this enigmatic and innocent bird. My artwork is the result of extensive research into eyewitness accounts, and drawings made at that time, by sailors and historians. As with all of my compositions, I have added an element of fantasy and symbolism.
