Description or Artist's Statement

The current works of art display four pieces that incorporate photography and digital illustration. This exhibition is meant to capture the attention of the dangerous and painful effects of wildlife poaching. However, this exhibit twists how we may see poaching by displaying human beings as part of the torturous pain just a few of the animals may have to go through. Some of these pieces may be difficult to look at, but realistically this happens to many animals for the own sake of self-interest, and therefore it is something that must be revealed in order to make a change. The only request from the artist is to take in the emotions of the pieces, as well as possible appalling reactions. Now think about family, friends, or anyone close as the people featured are to the artist and imagine them in the same excruciating condition. Would you take action then?
