Artist's description:

This piece is about classification and order of nature and animals by humans. Although the style of drawing and addition of text alludes to traditional natural history illustrations, the categorising (striped animals) and composition of the animals is created in a more folk taxonomic manner, making a more unusual visual form. Folk taxonomies are distinguished from scientific taxonomies in that they are more associated with social knowledge and everyday speech.

The mono colouring brings the texture of the drawing and lines into focus, highlighting the patterns of the animals fur. All the illustrations are from original hand drawings, as this observational process is an important part of my practice.
