Burning Earth

If creating art is a personal search for meaning, art cannot escape reflecting the spirit of the times. Our own historical period is characterized by increasing pollution and destruction of the air, water and soil – resulting in a rate of extinction of plants and animals that threatens the very future of the world as we know it.  War and exploitation of the land and oceans for human needs and desires have wounded the earth and all life that depends upon it.  My imaginary landscapes express anxiety about this destruction of the natural world.
