About this series
Partially legible, handwritten data from the 2021-2022 IPCC reports (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), as well as technical diagrams, symbols and snippets of text from environmental toxicology studies, engulf the biblical figures of Adam and Eve. Fiery, drought-ridden and stormy Anthropocene landscapes, infused with complex, confusing and incomplete information, surround nude figures positioned in theatrical gestures of grief, fear, and surrender. Psychology shows that when the emotionally reactive, instinctive mind is triggered, information processing and rational thinking are difficult to maintain. These paintings merge imagery of contemporary “data overload” with the body language of emotional trauma and physical distress.
Media: acrylic and latex house paint, vine charcoal, graphite, colored pencil on canvas, sizes variable.
