I am an artist who says something about this world we live in through powerful images about what is happening to us as human beings. The state of the present climate which affects us all.
These three paintings, “the dark side” “transhumanism” and “mitochondria” are each describing the human condition. Our true god given biology (mitochondria) and the darkness (dark side) that may affect our very humanity (transhumanism) that we face. We are a part of this world as much as the wildlife, the trees, the water and earth. We must not lose sight of this. We are intrinsic to this world and not redundant as we are made to think. We have been given these eyes and heart to appreciate this earth and we have been given the custodianship to look after it. This is something I also feel passionate about hence my submission to this auction.
