Description

A dark tower looms over a pale‚ turbulent sea. A lone figure stands in opposition. This figure is taken from Friedrich\'s \'Wanderer Above the Mists\'. This is a visually busy painting. The sky includes painted dinosaur skulls‚ text and found material‚ spatters of paint and overlapping layers of whites‚ browns‚ blues and blacks. The dark tower may represent industry‚ corruption‚ authority or control‚ while the lone figure‚ taken from one of the most famous works of Romanticism‚ is the brave representative of humanity.
