The Age of Stupid

In this painting, done while I was in China on an art residency, I wanted to say something about the rush to thoughtlessly exploit the environment in the rush to industrialise for greedy materialist desires and leave the past traditions with its truly conservative nature destroyed. In the background there are coal mines and gas wells, fracking and exploration. The earth is cracking up and bleeding. The Qinghua vase represents the past.
