'Pike & Tippy' by Abbi Gilbert

This is incredible!

Artwork title: Pike & Tippy

Artist: Abbi Gilbert

Artist statement: “Uncle Pike is big. He’s physically big, he has a big personality, and he also has a big heart. I was struck by the contrast of the big man and the small girl – his niece Tippy – sharing a moment when they allow a wave of grief to wash over them. They grieve for themselves and for each other, for the tragedy of recent events and those from the deep past. There is so much emotion and beauty in this moment. There is honesty, rawness and vulnerability which is held in contrast with strength of character and the unshakable bond that holds these two together.”
