“ Colour and light are used to emphasize the vanishing world of wildlife and wilderness that implores us to take notice, appreciate the rare and raw beauty about us, and allow our imagination to roam about the abstract compositions symbolizing the unsettled and unsettling world in which man alters nature.”
