CARLO THERTUS : THE-R-TUS

Caveman, Acrylic on Canvas, 55" x 132" 1998

Earth, she amazes the life out of me. We evolved from the caves and today our imaginations have led us to the creation of the greatest civilizations of all time. This blue globe occupying the canvas is the egg of our universe, surrounded by satellites, shuttles and spacemen cruising above.

Below the globe is the great landscape of twenty first century civilization, where we are no longer cavemen. On the left and right side of the canvas are impressions of humans in caves, reflecting our past.

At this time, our imaginations have developed the technology capable of destroying all that we created.

Do we want to return to the cave?

-Carlo Thertus
