Is it human nature to revel in the environment while also participating in its destruction? What will we pass to our future generations and how can we educate them on what has happened to our natural systems? Realistic representation through artistic expression has always been a way of documenting, educating, and eliciting emotions. Presenting the viewer with an authentic lens, one that is documentary and raw, my artwork narrates the irreversible impact humans have on the earth. I aim to leave the viewer questioning classical notions of beauty and destruction. I see my artwork as a critique of our current industrialized society; thus creating necessary dialogue around how our development is changing both our surroundings and ourselves.
