Extinction II

Original painting Sold, oil on canvas, 320 x 150mm, 2008

“Extinction II” features a majestic Pouakai (Haast eagle) flying away from a dark burgundy tulip containing our planet earth. The native New Zealand eagle, which had a wingspan of up to 3 metres went extinct in 1400AD. This painting could be seen as depicting what Sofia terms an “earth flower”, which conceptually explores the Gaia hypothesis. This theory proposes that the earth's ecology is a complex interacting system of living and non-living parts that can be thought of as a single organism.
