Say Cheese

The 21st century brought hundreds of new scientific and technological advancements, one we could do without was the selfie stick, yet it has become commonplace all over the globe. This piece perfectly captures the bizarre nature of a selfie stick, allowing us to appreciate how absurd it is from natures perspective. I continued using the animal kingdom to outline our abnormal consumptions, habits or behaviour with this wonderfully detailed and realistic piece. I decided to selectively colour the object, emphasising the odd behaviour and creating a visual barrier between our world and theirs. I love the simplicity of the expression and captured moment in this piece, further accentuated by the realistic portrayal of the ape and its interaction with the stick. Created using graphite, ink and coloured pencils. Part of Nature’s Eyes collection, exploring the idea that certain consumptions, habits and objects have become so natural to us in our everyday lives we become oblivious to their impact. Yet from nature's eyes, all is not as it seems.
