thylacine rescue

from 10.00

Known colloquially as the “Tassie Tiger” the thylacine was a timid, shy and nocturnal marsupial.  They lived on the island of Tasmania and were intentionally hunted to extinction.

This painting shows a family of thylacines fleeing the island with a trust worthy and determined sailor. The sails have caught the wind and storm clouds are looming.

This painting represents the simultaneous feeling of wanting to save all the trees and animals, and caring so damn much about them that I would do anything to help them… but also being so scared that I just want to hide and flee from the truth about our ongoing environmental destruction.

Our desire to hide from the truth, empowers our incredible capacity for denial. Humans are super good at denial. I think it is where we live, most of the time, on“De- Nile”.

Perhaps this is the fundamental problem with humans? And why we can be so stupid to think that some quick money in the pocket is better than trees on the hill, or whales in the river.

If we are to mobilise as a species; and to face up to the impact we are having, individually and collectively. in regards to our ongoing wanton destruction of wild-spaces, I think we have to accept how scared we really are and to accept how much it hurts to see the truth. by facing our fears together we can chase those fees down, and become strong in the process. Rather than sail away, lets all turn that boat around, and come back to island and begin the work of collective action.

This is a print of the original acrylic painting by Claire and is available in three sizes; small (A5), medium (A4) and large (A3). Each print is made from a high resolution image of the original painting and the image is as big as will fit comfortably with a border for framing.

All our prints are on archival papers and inks designed not to fade for 100+ years and are signed and dated by the artist.

We provide free postage within Australia and New Zealand. Our international postage cost is a flat $8AU. 

Thank you for your interest in our art!
