|"Temporary landscape III"|
Watercolor, pen on paper. 4 Feb. 2006
Nature has been one of my preferred topics, and the destruction of massive areas of wilderness for the benefit of Progress (or rather the progress of benefits) has always touched me deeply. I wanted to point here to the lack of long term view when dealing with natural resources, which is a very common disease in our society. This disease is often treated only in its symptoms, trying to offer a cheap solution to a very complex problem.
The paintings here simulate temporary landscapes built to replace the beautiful, natural ones no longer on sight. As someone said, fun is not the contrary of serious, but the contrary of boring. Environmental issues can be boring to some people, so I preferred an attractive and yet ironic approach.
As in all my paintings, there is no previous scketches made. The strokes here are made directly on paper with a flat square brush, sometimes two colors mixed over one stroke.
