ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: To my mind, the leopard has to be one of the best looking animals on earth. It has such still, languorous beauty that exudes pure power. We were travelling on safari with our teacher, guide and host Jimmy, who is a senior member of the Uganda Conservation Foundation, when we got to spend quite a long time with this particular leopard. Incredibly, Jimmy spotted it from a very long way off and we simply had to take his word for it as we couldn’t see a thing! She was sleeping when we arrived but very luckily she woke up and had a look about and a bit of a stretch, before settling back down to sleep. I wanted to reflect the fact that she was part of her landscape in this piece, not wanting the leopard to be immediately obvious, but one part of the whole.
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Cy Baker lives in a time where most of the world is finally waking up to the environmental crisis mankind brought into being. He considers his job as an artist is to spread the message of how valuable, beautiful and fragile our planet is. He feels his part in this is to try to capture and communicate some of the raw, spiritual emotion felt when interacting with nature. Cy comments that he cannot capture the way these moments touch one’s soul in words, photographs or music, so he does so in the only way he knows, through his artwork.
