Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

Did you know that when 'The Lorax' by Dr Seuss was first published in 1971 (the year I was born), it was very controversial? The logging industry was extremely unhappy about its environmentalist message, and the book was banned in some California schools. Some parents were worried it would turn children against the forestry industry." I painted this work in response to learning about the book being banned. I've used the bright warning colours of nature in the work to represent the environmental destruction denounced in the book. The painting has a surreal feel, which is an expression of how mind boggling I find this reaction to a children's book with such a wonderful environmental message.
