"Luminous" by J.A.W. Cooper highlights the iconic endangered polar bear and the most pressing of global climate change.
"Depending on how you orient this piece the polar bear is either falling away from the light above or actively swimming toward the light below. I chose to orient the work "upside-down" as it felt more hopeful and unexpected. Issues such as climate change and habitat destruction can feel insurmountably large and shifting how we approach problems can help us find new and creative ways of exacting change."
J.A.W. Cooper was born in England, grew up in Kenya, Sweden, Ireland, and Southern California, and currently lives in smelly, smelly Los Angeles. Cooper's parents were freshwater ecologists and it is no surprise that an interest in the natural world is central to her artwork. Cooper works commercially in advertising for TV and movie campaigns to keep her continuously challenged and fulfilled – working as part of a larger team. In her "free time" Cooper is a profoundly creepy human being and absolutely loves making work as an illustrator/fine artist.
