Asher Boardman's latest exhibition continues to explore the theme of man's impact on nature and the environment:
'Least Concern' highlights an underlying hierarchy within the continuously expanding list of endangered species.
Generally, we as the global public, are made aware of larger and more visually appealing animals that are endangered and therefore we become most concerned with ‘saving’ them.
Often these aren’t catagorised as critically endangered. While we concern ourselves with sponsoring and petitioning to save them, the small, less ‘pretty’, too generic or too weird but, in fact, critically endangered animals often go by with no exposure to help their cause and in turn, for no particular reason, are 'less important’.
These works feature species of the same geographic location, in most instances one more recognisable than the other, but both of the same endangered status.
'Ask the Artist' is an interactive way to connect with artists represented by Quirky Fox. Every second Friday we reveal who our new interviewee is on our social media platforms and encourage you to ask any questions you might have of the featured artist. This information is published to our blog the following Friday. This week's featured artist is Meredith Marsone.
