ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: In his monochrome drawing Cole Stirling wonders, in an ever diminishing wild world, if there is still hope to live alongside nature or is time running out? Cole’s musing are illustrated by his juxtaposition of lions on the plains, as predators are amongst the first impacted by human encroachment, against the incongruous city backdrop. He poses the question, can we coexist or will civilisation overrun nature?
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Cole Stirling’s passion for wildlife started at an early age. His earliest memories include early morning drives in his beloved Hwange National Park. Art came as a by-product and a way to express Cole’s passion. Studying photography at university, and later completing field and trails guide qualifications, allowed Cole to develop an even greater appreciation for the natural world and a desire to conserve it through his work. Drawn to monochrome imagery, especially the simplicity of focus on tone and form, this is a feature that Cole strives for in his work, and also something he finds to be quite handy as he is colour-blind!
