Petition for change and help save wolves from extinction HERE
The current plight of the Eastern North Carolina Red Wolves inspired me to bring red wolves to your attention. When I first started researching these guys there were about 18 left in the wild. Just this week, research says there are about 9 left!
Urbanism is a gigantic problem as we are running them out of their own habitat so we can just develop some more.
Hunting is probably the latest biggest problem. After the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service caved to pressure, private landowners today, are allowed to kill Red Wolves on their property. Crazy!!
Adjusted policies and behaviors would change their current plight towards extinction.
I infuse my work with bright colors, which inject optimism and reactivate a mindset, and I often represent filters flowing through my subjects in tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my personal iconography. The symbols represent the chaos and conflict between man, technology, and nature. The process of repetition is cathartic and gives me a way to organize this chaos and conflict, infuse harmony and stability, and renew hope that mankind will find a way to create a sustainable planet where life and technological advances can live in balance.
