Josh Coffy and Heather Robinson: Under the Canopy (Chimpanzee)

Josh Coffy and Heather Robinson: Under the Canopy (Chimpanzee)


Chimps are found in the wild primarily in West and Central Africa, and are endangered due to poaching, habitat loss and disease. They live in groups of 15 to 150 in a male-dominated, strictly hierarchical society.

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.
