Part of a Group Exhibition "A Question of Love" at the Blackbird Gallery February - March 2019
….My grand-nephew was christened recently and the momentous occasion prompted me to wonder what world he will inherit. Our wilful refusal to address the inexorable destruction of our planet by the spectre of climate change informed my decision to paint a vision of the not too distant future, where the last of us will wait on the shore of a dying ocean, victims of our collective hubris and narcissism. A love for our children and grandchildren to question…
Painting this gave me great satisfaction, and I'm happy to say it is now in the private collection of somebody who appreciates it and its message.
