Pastel 142 - Extinction of the White Rhino
Is anyone else confused and angry that the white rhino now only lives in captivity? This was another unplanned piece, the subject emerging from the depths of the lines on the paper and other depths, as well. The cut-off horns, overalls, and upright posture ("Four legs good, two legs better!") all speak to the forced domestication and the reason for the extinction. The smoke speaks of the wrath and the destruction.
