I am passionate about Science and Nature. A great deal of current research separates the scientific mind from the creative mind. I have set out to create a Rhino that unifies these apparent opposites of thought. This may metaphorically unify the community into action for these great mammals.</p><h2>Artist statement</h2><p>Adair Imrie, Australian visual artist and graduate of the National Art School in Sydney.
