Sometimes I wish for a less complex world. Everything feels wrong. This can't be the best system we could have made. Yet so many don't or aren't able to question it. I dream of something different while trapped in it. Things that I value seem at odds with survival in what man has created.
This painting is an examination of childhood innocence placed against a natural world that is degrading. The familiar comforts we participate in and are also at the expense of the future of children and the natural world.
