Johora singaporensis, acrylic on canvas, 200cm x 160cm

Another painting I’ve completed this year: “Johora singaporensis” is a species of land crab native to Singapore, found only in one small area of river on the island and consequently listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List.

My painting is part of a series in which animals are depicted as fragmented, distorted images in reference to their ubiquity on the internet as they disappear from the real world.
