Artist's Description

In an alternate universe, a mother Thylacine and her cubs play in the pristine mountain environment of Tasmania.

Hunted down and killed by bounty hunters, these nocturnal predators rarely attacked humans.

They are often depicted as ferocious with gaping jaws, but I painted this family group from an old faded black and white photo of traumatised animals in captivity because I wanted to take them and place them back in their home.

The marsupial Thylacine, otherwise known as Tasmanian Tiger or more accurately, Tasmanian Wolf (it’s closest relative is the Canid), is said to be extinct but there are unconfirmed sightings in Tasmania, mainland Victoria and Western Australia (the Nannup Tiger).

It’s painted using water soluble oil paint on canvas.
