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
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.
