CARLO THERTUS : THE-R-TUS

Welcome to the Future II, Acrylic on Jute 66"x140" 1995

In nineteen ninety-five, France tested nuclear bombs in the South Pacific. I said to myself, "Welcome to The Future Part II. We are about to enter a whole new time in a world when consciousness is not in relativity to its time." I asked myself, "Is Mr. Chirac (France's President) crazy? Doesn't he understand that such acts (or sign language) is bad momentum for the world's socio-psychological problems?"

In this painting color plays an important role in depicting the level of destruction man is capable of achieving. The massive burst that occupies the globe is an atomic explosion, simulating the end of humanity. In the horizon the city of cities has been evaporated
with its humanity turned into a graveyard.

This is not my hope, but at the rate we are going it is exactly where the world is heading.

-Carlo Thertus
