Josh Coffy and Heather Robinson: Ascending (Hawaiian Crow)

Josh Coffy and Heather Robinson: Ascending (Hawaiian Crow)


The Hawaiian Crow is currently extinct in the wild (though reintroduction programs are underway) and the most endangered of all the corvids. Unlike most crows, Hawaiian crows did not adapt well to human presence. It is likely that their extinction was caused by persecution by humans, illegal hunting, habitat loss from logging and ranching and diseases introduced by mosquitos.

This art is created to highlight many of the creatures that are considered endangered or threatened. Their habitat is constantly being compromised in a give-and-take with civilizations. In a sense the work is created with that same give-and-take. Artist Heather Robinson creates the playing field with layers of fabric, design, colors, and patterns. Then she hands the work to artist Joshua Coffy to add the actors. This collaborative effort is a delicate balance that pushes and pulls the attention, giving voice to the many creatures that are facing this challenge of Civilizations.
