A Smile On The Face Of The Tiger

This large oil on canvas with references to abstract expressionism and strong figurative elements is inspired by a famous limerick:

„There was a young lady of Niger

Who smiled as she rode on a tiger

They returned from the ride

With the lady inside

And the smile on the face of the tiger”

In a certain sense the limerick is highly actual: are we all riding on a tiger?

By ignoring the continuing climate-change catastrophes, could Mankind eventually also be devoured?
