From the artist’s statement: The earth is a tough planet. Everything is in a state of flux – it has always has been that way. Mass extinctions have occurred before. They are not new. The current ongoing event is different. Unlike previous ones, humans have accelerated the rate of evolution of life on earth. The image “Leuconotopicus borealis” is from the “Threatened” series, which combine the past with the present. The future is unwritten.
