This painting is part of a larger body of work titled Survey into the Cretaceous, which involves research into our consciousness and its relation to evolution.
A journey 68 million years into the past to collect specimens to paint in my studio can be possible if my imagination and ability as a painter allow it. This is a very deliberate act of consciousness; consciousness being a product of evolution.
- Andrew Sullivan, 2014
