Art Description

Collage: Plastic, Paint, Acrylic, Oil and Charcoal on Canvas.

A rare earth processing plant is being built in Gebeng, Kuantan, Pahang, Malaysia. I feel that this is
atrocious and ill-advised. Keeping aside any underlying political interests, the
likelihood of harmful radiation to the earth (by the waste material left behind from the
processes of plant processes) alone is cause for condemnation. In case of any
accident, some estimates suggest that any life forms within a radius of at least 60km
will be put in harm’s way.
Self-interest in a few people who have sold their souls to the devil, blind them from
seeing that they are jeopardizing the safety of thousands.

In my painting, a heap of black radiation (an image of the landscape transferred, then torn up into small fragments, and a then a collage made out
of the painting) is seen to stretch across from the source, flooding the earth and
eroding all forms of life. My intention is to convey to the viewer, the extent of the
destruction to the natural environment, the living species and an entire history.The child was standing there to defend homeland.
