Industry and the environment at odds with each other, humans destroying their own planet. Folly, the perfect word to describe our need for things that create industries which in turn are harming the natural world we hold so dear. There is a catch, we need so many things to maintain our lifestyles. We have cars so we need roads and bridges, energy, burning coal and using gasoline, creating pollution . We are swinging out into an uncertain future. There is beauty in the things we have created but it is the tension of these aspects of modern living that inspired these paintings.
