Karma Chameleon, 2016
86cm x 121cm (34" x 47.5")
Inspired by a little chameleon basking in the sunshine amongst some verdant foliage in Spain. I found myself humming the Boy George song, named him Karma Chameleon, and mused whether he might change in colour.

These intriguing creatures are distinctive and related to a lizard family. Their feet are very extensive and they have an interesting swaying gait. Their tongues are rapid and extrudable and they have a type of crest on their brow. Chameleon’s eyes are independently mobile and when they eye up their prey they focus forward in coordination and have a stereoscopic vision. They climb about in verdant foliage and hunt visually for their prey.
