Recycling –Acrylic on magazine paper

My latest work called ‘’The Black Series’’, is a glimpse of the human and environmental turmoil in the world today.
I explore the powerful creative and destructive forces at large, the dualities that govern mankind, life on Earth, as well as who or what is liable for the onset of universal chaos and the current global economic shocks. I look deep into the dark beast that drives mankind to live in the often unpredictable and volatile shadows where his future in this increasingly hostile environment is compromised.

“We’re all in a race; a battle between two forces: degradation and restoration. Who will win? We don’t know.” (Hubert Reeves, Astrophysicist)

‘’The Black Series’’ is a trilogy where the works of art are grouped into the following components: ‘’Organic’’, ‘’Shadows’’, and ‘’Pop Tart’’.

The ‘’Organic’’ component questions our troubled relationship with the environment in this time of over-exploitation of non-renewable resources—our thirst for oil—and global warming as a result of human activity.

“The laws of nature dictate that if you don’t live in harmony with nature, you will disappear.” (Hubert Reeves)

I use black paint in my work because I’m fascinated by the shade’s depth, richness, and everything it can evoke.Black is at once the sum and the absence of all colors. The perfect paradox.
“Black, because it creates depth among other colors.” (Coco Chanel)

Black, so that my art may symbolically express an annihilation of all that could have been, all that we may have consumed, and the end of the world as it is.

During my creative process, it is important for me to apply the concept of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”. As such, Black Series was created using recycled fashion magazines and/or other day to day recyclables not only to create art but in the hopes of encouraging viewers to ask themselves questions about the environment and their day to day consuming habits.
