2011,Oil and egg tempera on panel

The artist describes the genesis for this painting: "We read that species are going extinct every day, yet this concept is difficult to grasp. There is no alarm bell, no signal of any kind, to announce the terrible event. Inspired by the Borges story "The Secret Miracle," I envisioned this spontaneous combustion occurring at the moment when the last rhinoceros is killed in the wild." Madeline von Foerster's website:
