Creature Conserve - Axolotls in Mexico City

I made this sketch as a present for Bertie in 2018, a portrait of his pet axolotl Ash. Have you heard of an axolotl? I hadn’t. They are a type of Mexican salamander only found living in two lakes in Mexico City (and one of these lakes has now dried up). I have exciting news about a project developing in 2021 engaging more with these small unique creatures, a collaboration with Creature Conserve. More details to come soon.

Smile Inside Exhibition, IID, Woking

 


So happy to be invited to make a commission as a response to a personal story shared by an older person in isolation, a story that makes them smile inside in this difficult time. Patrick's memory was a road trip from Texas to Acapulco through Mexico in 1972, and it was such a joy to make this painting collage inspired by his words. The work was selected to be developed into a larger more narrative piece for the group exhibition, which opens tomorrow in Woking.
