“Rhino and Poachers", is on view at The Plaxall Gallery/LiC-A. Opening Reception September 8, 2018. More info here

The painting addresses the issue of the black rhino being poached for its horn. In certain cultures, the rhino’s horn is believed to have medicinal and virile-endowing qualities. This belief is erroneous. Since hunting the rhino is illegal, poachers must act fast and therefore unscrupulously, taking no heed as to the animal’s welfare.
