"Forgotten items", acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm
"Deep water horizons" acrylic on paper, 64 x 50 cm
These 2 paintings are examples from a cycle of works dealing with our abused oceans and nature. It seems that our society still does not see the long term impact of our behaviour.
When painting, I'm trying to express what touches me and try to make things visible. e.g. "forgotten items" is kind of a story of human shortsigthedness.
We throw away our plastic waste into rivers or the sea or just forget our items in the environment. Those "forgotten items" are forming already huge islands.
It must be human shortsightedness, that the pollution of our oceans with plastic trash seems to be overseen. Everyone is responsible but it looks like everyone is waiting that our politicians take care.
The next example "deep water horizon" with all shades of caribean blue is not what it seems to be at first sight. Tourism is booming and the catastrophy is almost forgotten. Kind of a mass amnesia. With seven million litres of Corexit, BP let the oil pest disappear. The gulf recovers, the water is blue, beaches are clean. Super duper. "Deep water horizon" is no longer visible. What a summerly fallacy.
