“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” — Chief Seattle Dear reader.
This is one of the most relevant topics of today’s world when finally men realized the impact they have on Mother Nature and planet earth.
Products that we use and discard on daily basis, gases that change earth’s atmosphere, chemicals that impact our environment and work their way into the food chain and accumulate and persist throughout the years, all of these and many more destroy our habitat and endanger life on earth. In this painting, the artist uses mixed media to express the impact that humans have on our nature with collage, acrylic paint and oil pastels. It is a rich yet subtle composition with a beautiful blend of earthy colors.
On the right corner of the painting you can see 3 figures with their back turned to the viewer symbolizing humans’ indifference towards the world around them. Chinese script was used in contrast to the English script to reference the global manufacturing impact countries have around the world. This painting is relevant today more than ever. It invites the viewer to rethink human‘s consumerism and its environmental consequences.
