Resistance

Acrylic on Canvas102 x 76cmMy artworks are abstractions of the Earth's polar ice caps. I intended to portray the monumental, magnificent, and pristine nature seen in Antarctica and the Arctic regions by using thick, white impasto layers. A little icebreaker ship glides through the sea, its size insignificant in contrast to its surroundings, a metaphor for our human existence, amongst the grand scale of the natural environment. Human wellbeing is inescapably bound by the welfare of nature, so a harmonious coexistence is necessary. Sadly, this fragile connection is on the edge of breaking, as the ice sheets continue disappear.Available For Sale
