"This painting was in my 2012 show at the Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, Italy. It is part of a long series of paintings (“The Late Fauna of Early North America”) that began with depicting extinct species (that may never have actually existed). The series has had a few offshoots that vaguely reference parasites and climate change. This painting touches on the subject of the displacement of species as a result of climate change. I try not to be too heavy-handed about it though. My hope is that people will enjoy the image first and then perhaps either discover the message or invent their own message while viewing it." - Scott Musgrove
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Scott Musgrove and 1xRUN.
ABOUT Scott Musgrove:
I never intended to discover numerous heretofore unidentified animal species and, thereby, turn the scientific community on its ear. These discoveries, and my theories of how they came to be, have won me few friends and many enemies among experts in the fields of History, Biology, Zoology and the Culinary Arts.…I don’t have many friends in Mathematics either. When one reports honestly from the front lines of Evolutionary Biology, one should be prepared to ruffle a few feathers.
In challenging beloved scientific assumptions and throwing a Rhesus monkey wrench into the grinding machinery of the status quo, I have sparked a powder keg of reflexive anger from legions of zoological theorists whose scientific essays and thesis papers now appear, if not merely wide of the mark, patently absurd in the revelatory glare of my newly introduced fauna. They can no better account for the Salvelinus Fontinalis Hirsutus (Hairy Brook Trout) than they can the Elliptical Equine, or any of my newly discovered animal species lodged so high in the tree of life. No matter what your local zookeeper says, these are no mere evolutionary weeds – they are leaves on the Tree of life (Life Tree Leaves) that, sadly, have fallen before their time in the cruel summer of our fertile planet.
I am Scott Musgrove. I read these tree leaves.
