Artwork Description

Acrylic on stretched canvas, ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

This is part of an ongoing series on climate change and the damaging ecological effects of human interference within the natural world and its inhabitants.

Herein lies the paradox... self portrait calling the Patron Saint of the environment and animals, St.Francis of Assisi. Coltan is mined for usage in electronics such as mobile phones. This is destroying the habitat for many gorillas. With many animals being on the verge of extinction this proves an ethical dilemma. Herein lies the paradox...I call upon the presence of Assisi for assistance and protection of the natural world and its inhabitants. However, I call on a mobile phone...the very thing that is contributing to this problem.
