ARTIST'S COMMENT: There is a "mythology" about when the lion and lamb lie down together. I was struck by how the map of Mesopotamia (Iraq) and surrounding lands reveals a lion and a lamb lying side by side... Throughout the creation of the Hot Spots series, in quiet conversations with friends, I would comment about the number of people quoting "when the lion and the lamb lie down together", but to me, having pored over map and satellite images of Mesopotamia and surrounding lands for months to produce the Hot Spots series, it was obvious that they already do through geo-political juxtaposition. It astonished me that no-one else seemed to have noticed that - or the incredible beauty when viewed from satellite height. © Ranna®.

The Hot Spots works are inspired by satellite images courtesy of the MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center. Members of the team attended the showing of these works at the Embassy of Australia Gallery (Washington DC).
