Jack’s Bay is on the west coast of South Island, New Zealand. We sat on this deserted beach at 46 degrees South, contemplating the giant waves, the distance to the next point of land – somewhere half a world away on the coast of Chile thousands of miles away – and the fact that (at the time) it was the ‘southest’ we’d ever been.
When you visit the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum its a job to know where to look - at the marvellous exhibits? Or at the magnificent architecture? In this painting you'll spot a dodo, some dinosaur footprints, the swifts that nest in the tower, a dinosaur skeleton and so much more! My favourite bit is the frog in the jar. What's your's? The title comes from Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of Species' in which he wrote of his theory of evolution by natural selection: "There is grandeur in this view of life..." The print is last one of a limited edition (of 4) hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour - 450mm x 700mm.
