Unnatural Beauty

This painting was inspired by how natural things are a rarity these days; everything is genetically modified, or controlled in some manner. There is a fusion between animal and foliage to demonstrate their interdependence. The Jaguar is a man made construct; a Peacock Jaguar, and some of the vegetation is likewise fabricated as it was inspired by circuit boards. The painting is beautiful, and demonstrates how seductive technology can be; just because something is enchanting, does not mean it is good. A person will buy this painting because it is gorgeous, but in the meantime, exotic species are becoming extinct. What is a painting compared to a living Jaguar?
