'The fate of our world is in your hands, means exactly what it says. Global warming , extinction and the overall negative impact by humans still continues at a reasonably fast pace and it is all of our responsibility to act now and play our part!
In this painting I have placed a chimpanzee in a contemporary setting. I did this due to the fact they are a threatened species in the wild. Chimpanzees also share a close connection to humans through DNA and complex emotions and intelligence. Who better to send this message?
The chimpanzee is sitting sitting on a copy of Charles Darwins book as we also have also evolved from common ancestors.
The earth is being held as it slowly fragments due to the current threats. You willnote that there are no arctic poles shown on the globe. The hour glass represents time passing and you willsea that the sand is almost finished.
I dont want to get on my soap box, but i do think we should just stop and spare a thought for what we are doing on a daily bases and do our bit, however large or small, to contribute towards reducing our impact on our shared earth.
Kindest regrds and have a safe 2021.
