I am convince about the positive potential energy dormant deep inside of our children. My main message is not come with a painting depicting the beauty of our marine world. As a painter, I don’t think I am supposed to copy what only nature create so beautifully, but I can create a visual to act like a mirror, showing man how they are in that period called anthropocene. We are causing the death of our marine life and our red hands illustrate that concept well. According to Dr Ruth Gates, by 2050, it is estimated that 90% of our coral will die due to climate change and human activity. We need to change and that change should come from children.
My work illustrate the concept of time also, the past, the present and the future. that’s the idea of using a triptych. The first canvas shows the birth of our island through colonisation, birth of the political system which has engender our present society and culture. The second is our actual society, dormant not willing to change and the third canvas is our future, our children, the true caretaker of our sea who will give life to a new world.
