The material world around us is a mute commentary on our life and times. The objects we cherish, those we use and others which we discard - each is an conscious or often unconscious choice that reflects our identity and beliefs. From the artifacts in our museums to the commonplace objects in our homes, each is an eloquent tale worth listening to - a story of our world as it will be interpreted by the future.
OIL ON CANVAS - 65 X 28 INCHES
Human history is shaped by our discovery and use of materials through the ages. From pottery to bronze and copper, to glass, steel and now the exponential usage of plastic, human evolution traces an increasing graph defined by our exploitation of the Earth's resources.
Presenting 'Homosapien' - my photorealistic oil painting where a rising graph of water glasses in different materials mimics the well known graph of human evolution from ape to homosapien. These glasses stand witness to our exploding crisis of resource use and exploitation - plastics primarily, but also subtly
that of water.
