This picture is painted onto a mirror, and yes, that is me that you see sticking out ... was very difficult to paint on the mirror and to photograph the painting. I wanted to do something different for the art competition up in Zambia, and liked the idea that you could see yourself next to the chimp and then when you come close your image becomes that of the chimp - hence the title evolution. I also wanted people to be aware of how close they are to us, especially when they are in the sights of a gun. I am not sure if the concept worked, what do you think?
