Acrylic painting Polar Bears with ectoplasm by Darcy Martel

Polar Bears with ectoplasm

Acrylic on Canvas- I went to see an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, about trick photography and seances etc. I had the idea to work on some imagery of currently endangered animals trying to contact extinct ones from beyond the grave, in a desperate attempt to ask for advice and help, in order to avoid extinction themselves. This is one of those works.
