Artist statement:

Polar Bears are facing many forms of danger but one of the biggest threats they face, is oil. Due to oil exploration in the arctic, the Polar Bear population is declining. As oil and gas reserves in the south dry up, it is becoming more common to see exploration happening in the arctic. Unfortunately, we have not yet discovered an effective way to clean or control an oil spill under the difficult weather conditions that the arctic puts forth and as a result we are seeing destruction of habitat, reduced insulation, and poisoning in the region and among the animals. The added stress on the Polar Bear's environment will continue to accelerate the speed at which they are going extinct, which is precisely what inspired this painting. The piece is meant to bring awareness to the danger this beautiful animal faces and the urgency for us to take responsibility and begin making choices that protect them.
