2019: A New Painting

With climate change, and argument, within sight of cultures once established and now gone, it is important for us to look at the potential catastrophic collapse of environments, of ecosystems, of species, of complex and established civilizations, and then consider the potential impacts upon ourselves. We are not immune.

This painting is an interpretive vision of a possible tomorrow: parched and barren lands descending from the mountains, the remaining plant life encapsulated, communities crumbling into archaeological mounds. Might the universe offer potential alternatives?
