The Banggai Crow, 2016

Acrylic on primed canvas

Visitors to the gallery were invited to ask the artist, Marcus Coates questions that preoccupied them and struggled to answer themselves. This painting is his answer to the question, “How can I make obligations to family a valuable experience for me?”

The Banggai Crow, once thought extinct was rediscovered in 2009 on Indonesia’s Peleng Island.
