On behalf of Mark and the Horniman, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far.
We are now five days in and 25 of you have secured 15% of the £9,500 we need. It’s really inspiring to see that others are as enthusiastic about the project as we are.
We’re excited to show you what our eye-catching tote bag will look like when you receive it. We can’t wait to see you all walking around with your Mark Fairnington Zebra tote – they are a real one-off.
The Zebra image is taken from a series of paintings Mark made of the eyes of a range of taxidermy specimens. Another is the ‘Beast’, a painting of the eye of the Muskox in the Horniman collection. You may have seen ‘Beast’ promoting this project on social media and on our website.
These and other eye paintings will feature in Mark’s exhibition at the Horniman if we successfully raise the money. So please donate and share our message with your friends so that can make our total and we can show you more of Mark’s work.
