Artist's Description

Walking along a dry riverbed in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia I came across this still potent ancient. The fallen giant Red Gum seemed like some prehistoric animal. It’s stance defiant, resisting final decay. I did a pen drawing on the spot and took a couple of reference photos. I worked on the oil painting on and off for some months adding the glass case and making the landscape more worn down, degraded and surreal as it might be in the distant future. The glass case represents the notion of “too little too late”, as with the Tasmanian Tiger the only place we can see it is in the display case. The small boy represents some future generation, the recipient of the"Legacy".
Why the patterned lines in the background landscape? This represents the idea that no matter how much we damage the landscape, the powerful underlying rythm of nature will still be there, long after we are dust.
