On Borrowed Time
Acrylic, gold leaf & ink on canvas, 30x22
Earth’s climate is changing because the planet is loosing its ability to deal with CO2. Urbanism is expanding at rapid rates, mostly because technology gives us the ability to do so. Methane gases produced by grazing animals, industrial waste and human excessive consumption are all causes for enormous carbon footprints, making even the next decade a scary one to face. This work emotionally responds to our current status. We don’t have enough trees and we have too much CO2. A tough and very sad predicament.
I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work
