Sonny Skulls

Sonny’s ‘To The Bone’ exhibition was made up of a series of canvas paintings that explored the landscape of the fast-approaching demise of our world’s wildlife and how this is intrinsically tied to humanity’s own ability to thrive. The imagery was further brought to life through the representation of death, in the form of hand-painted skull replicas – a tangible symbol for what the future may hold.

Mirroring the canvas paintings, native patterns embellish the bones while slowly melting away; a dual extinction of species and heritage. These skulls, with their golden teeth ablaze, invoke an appreciation of the might and power of these creatures, together with an acknowledgment of the fact that we, as mere humans, could truly be the most ferocious and frightening species of all.
