From the artist:
his acrylic painting is an illustration for a poem by Rogan Wolf, on a post apocalyptic theme - also reflecting my own anxiety around the way the world is going, how I imagine things might be in the future. The Last Blackbird That blackbird pouring its heart out through the last hour of the day may be the last in Creation. It sings quite well, considering the force of the world’s grief, guilt, terror, the forest of microphones sprouting round its feet the incessant flashes and shrieks. As the evening news re-plays the blackbird’s voice, the voice of the newscaster breaks.
