Paintings about Pollution
We have been polluting our environment for 250 years or so since the start of the Industrial Revolution.
Back then we had no idea of the damage we would do but we know now. Our very existence as a species is in jeopardy - this view is underwritten by the world's leaders and articulated by respected experts such as David Attenborough. But still our political leaders are slow to act, indeed one world leader of a vital nation is in denial.
I am protesting my way through my paintings, I am building a series simply called Paintings about Pollution. You can see here those I have painted so far. I try to explain my journey and inspiration along the way. Each painting is different but they are all motivated by my aim to make pollution of our planet - the effects - visible. Please comment if you wish to.
My paintings about polluting our planet began in a frivolous way. I was not really aware that it affected me deeply as I figure it does most of us.
Simply called "pollution" I enjoyed creating the almost happy shapes and adding a lot of colour. It was the beginning of my journey.

This one, the second painting just sorta flowed. I had no intention of using all that red at the start but as it grew I figured only one colour could say what I wanted - red!
