"Sungazer depicts a girdled lizard, commonly known as the sungazer lizard (scientific name: Smaug gigantus). The lizard is endemic to the Highveld grasslands in the interior of South Africa and is under threat of extinction due to habitat loss from agriculture, mining and related land transformations. It is often seen basking on the ground or on termite mounds, looking upwards to the sun. The lizard will feature prominently in my next exhibition where I intend to explore mutations between human, insect and reptile to reflect on conflicts of power and changes occurring in the natural environment."
