about this artwork

in extremis  [the suicide series]




should we believe in fate, in destiny ? I believe we should ! july 19, 2018 early in the morning : by pure coincidence I opened the patio door and was drawn to the tiny water basin embedded in it ... to my surprise I saw something moving in it trapped by branches and unable to get out of it. the poor thing was about to drown so I hurried to get it out of the water. an adult hedgehog gasping for air ... I took him inside, dried him as much as I could and kept him in my arms for a couple hours before leaving him on the couch to recover on its own. after six hours I took him back out into the garden ...the idea for this artwork came from this experience


good to know :

unfortunately I haven't seen that hedgehog anymore ... until one day ... he was picking up branches in our lavender shrubs to get ready for the upcoming winter ... ;-)
