About the Artwork:
“The concept for this piece came to me right after going into ‘quarantine’. Like so many Americans, one of the first things I did after locking down was to watch the documentary series, Tiger King. Seeing those animals so far from their natural habitats, in strange and sad circumstances, was really jarring. I grew up just south of Tampa Bay and have a strong connection to the area, and the idea of a tiger living in the FL swamp (Big Cat Sanctuary) stuck with me.” – Johannah O’Donnell
