Kara Maria
At Sight of Sun (lark bunting)

2022

About the Item

Color lithograph, Edition 20. The artist describes this project: “Human activity is causing the mass extinction of plant and animal species at an alarming rate. I paint carefully rendered, miniature portraits of endangered animals into larger compositions to raise questions about Earth’s biodiversity crisis and the place of wildlife within increasingly unstable habitats. The swirling and exploding shapes and colors represent how our progressively chaotic environment is displacing fauna and the systems that support it. This lithograph includes an image of Colorado’s state bird, the lark bunting. According to a 2019 study by the National Audubon Society, two-thirds of US birds are threatened with extinction from climate change and habitat degradation, including half of Colorado’s birds, among them the lark bunting. I realize that making art might not be the most direct way to bring about change in the world. But I hope, as Louise Bourgeois said of drawing, it might offer 'just a little help'.”

    Nelson Mandela, Artist's Motivation, Signed Limited Edition Lithograph Many people are unaware that Nelson Mandela turned his hand to art in his 80's as a way of leaving a legacy for his family. He spent time with an art tutor and learnt to draw. In 2002, when creating the The Motivation print, he told Anna and Laura from Belgravia Gallery of his desire to become a full time artist when he retired. This artwork is a handwritten Artist’s Motivation by Nelson Mandela and reads: “Today when I look at Robben Island I see it as a celebration of the struggle and a symbol of the finest qualities of the human spirit, rather than as a monument to the brutal tyranny and oppression of apartheid. Robben Island is a place where courage endured in the face of endless hardship, a place where people kept on believing when it seemed their dreams were hopeless and a place where wisdom and determination overcame fear and human frailty. It is true that Robben Island was once a place of darkness, but out of that darkness has come a wonderful brightness, a light so powerful that it could not be hidden behind prison walls, held back by prison bars...
