These nocturnal friends occupy the night sky and a big part of my imagination. I made this print to honor them as they have been largely vilified and misunderstood, and I worry about their survival with the spread of white nose syndrome.
This print is a part of a series that depicts animals that are active at dawn and dusk or nocturnal. Through this series I am exploring the transformation of our natural, cultural and constructed environments under the night sky. These prints also explore the connections between humans and other animals through our interactions in shared environments. Many of the animals featured as a part of this series have been vilified, and are still considered pests or dangerous. I wanted to celebrate these survivors, who live among us in cities and other human occupied areas.
