About The Artwork

My artwork reflects on thoughts around existential philosophy, ecology and climate change. I created this particular piece because it resonated with ideas put forward by Ernest Becker in his book,'Denial of Death' where he seeks to understand the basis of human existence and a reflection drawn from my secondary research into climate change and the effects as witnessed in droughts, flooding and fires, and melting of icecaps all accelerated by increased global temperatures. 'Lifeline' is a 3 colour Photo Lithograph that was my reaction to seeing refugees drown in the Mediterranean, which in many ways is symptomatic of the rise of the Climate refugee. I chose a Lithograph because working with Tusche allowed me to express a fluidity that I wanted to achieve in a print form medium.
