Painting by Alexandra Hall measures 36"x48"x2". This is an original acrylic painting on canvas.


Creating anthropomorphic characters is a big part of how I exercise my imagination.  As a child my mother took me and my siblings to the local zoo regularly.  This exposure to a wide variety of animals had a large impact on my daydreams.   As an adult I found that I coped with the stress by doodling caricatures of my teachers or professors, often making them into animals.  They weren't cruel renditions, just anthropomorphic and whimsical.  This has carried over into my paintings, and this is a strong theme throughout my work. 


This piece is part of a new series that highlights the importance of education and conservation. One is not possible without the other, and I hope that by painting these extinct or endagered animals surrounded by books that I can create dialog around what each of us can do to preserve and protect our planet.
