Rose Corcoran is a contemporary fine artist, whose work centres around the power of the animal kingdom. For Corcoran, art serves a purpose: her beautiful depictions of exotic beasts both represent their strength and magnificence, as well as their vulnerability, as increasingly endangered species face the threat of extinction.
‘Leopard Sound on Cream’ depicts the majestic head of a leopard, his face turned upwards and contorted into a jaw-breaking roar (or silent and harmless yawn?). Against a soft cream background, Corcoran has sketched the animal in strokes of black and grey charcoal, rendering every tiny detail - from the slightest whisker to the smallest spot - to capture the vitality of the fearsome animal with breathtaking skill and sensitivity.
