Robbie Bushe. The Last Neanderthal

Robbie Bushe’s four large scale paintings follow the journey the last of the ancient Neanderthals some 30,000 years ago. A  solitary female lovingly tends her wild garden as she prepares for the end of her species while modern humans search for the secret of their de-extinction, fully realised some 30,000 years into our future.

The paintings, while intended as works in themselves, are also the trigger and backdrop for an animation short which extends and plays with the narrative.
