TIGER IN REPOSE, 2021
This piece is part of a 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.
This piece was inspired by a visit to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.
Tigers are in big trouble because of deforestation and poaching. As their habitat is cleared for farming and palm oil plantations, the tiger population is dropping. Improved monitoring and pressure on the Indonesian government may help.
You can choose to buy products that use only sustainable palm oil, which preserves native forests for tigers and other rare animals.
There are an estimated 400 to 600 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.
Painting by Alexandra Hall measures 36"x48"x2".
This is an original acrylic painting on gallery-wrapped canvas.

TIGER IN REPOSE
"My imaginative spirit is born from the people who inspired me to dream, to see things differently and to live fearlessly. Every work is influenced by hundreds of little moments and extraordinary experiences. In my pieces I try to bring some whimsy into the mundane. It is my hope that I force my audience to exercise their imagination, that my works inspire conversation and that they evoke joy."
