Christine Lamberth – It’s Mine

Drawing, Original | 110 × 84 cm | Framed


Out of stock

There is a juxtaposition of life and death on the plains of Africa. The absence of colour focuses the eye on the intensity of the moment as a blackjack jackal valiantly defends his kill against the relentless hyenas and a growing horde of vultures.

Charcoal on watercolour paper


Christine Lamberth’s work reflects on the dire straits into which the fauna of the planet has been remorselessly plunged. She interrogates the current circumstances in the natural world, redirecting the viewer’s gaze from the romantic concept of an African landscape to the current reality of imminent species extinction. Christine aspires to initiate a conversation with her work that elucidates and illuminates. She aims to be bold, in your face, and to confront you, the viewer, to see Africa through her eyes.
