Public Plague (Portrait of the world)

Mixed media on canvas, 5'x8'


This life size self portrait of the artist has them clutching a burning globe in one hand and a screaming raccoon in the other. Around their amphibious feet are skeleton and a two headed peacock drinking the last bit of glacier water from the poles. A 'green flash' a rare event right as the sun sets on the horizon signals we are about to enter the night. This painting was a precursor into 2020, a bat 'corona' and tears weeping after a vision of a global virus. With the complexity of human society and an established history of ignoring the natural systems of Earth, we are seeing more destabilization of climatic and biosphere systems.
