Newfoundland

Newfoundland features a new series of gouache-on-paper paintings depicting threatened or endangered flora and fauna existing in an imaginary world.

For Newfoundland, Marill has familiarized herself with species (focusing primarily on plants and birds) whose status is either threatened, endangered, or extinct. Within her imagery she uniquely navigates and accesses the rich past of natural history illustration thus creating a modern re-interpretation of these threatened and endangered species. By highlighting that the three major contributors to loss of species are habitat destruction, invasive species, and human development, Marill brings delicate attention to this serious problem.

All drawings are gouache on paper.

2 prints from this series are available thru 20×200.com
