Artists always there, documenting our demise artfully



Meeting Karen downtown, with her membership and generosity, we go to the Light Catcher museum of art - Endangered Species/ Artists on the front line of biodiversity. - Sobering, heartbreaking, to be sure. Brave and very clever artists of all sorts interpreting the abuse / the regarding land/nature/ as a commodity, Our demise.


This artist- I can not even begin to wrap my head around! 
Tedious and thorough methods!




 A wall of Warhol-"known for his love of animals"- that's news to me, not the first notion that comes up when his work is mentioned.




  
A wall of coral reef , pottery- gorgeous!
Beside it some factoids about it's destruction due to human waste and 6,000 tons of toxic  sunscreen in a year off of the Hawaiian coast. 



oh, but the ART!!


And of course there is this.









And this, breaking our hearts further.

  2. We humans are so very determined to kill that which we love and even that which sustains us.

  4. I've seen Edward Burtynsky's work before -- that Arizona photo is fascinating. Can you imagine how many people must be swimming in the ocean in order for there to be that much accumulated toxic sunscreen?! Once again, WAY too many people in the world. And that wolf -- my god. Appalling.

    1. An over peopled planet and all of our detritus- thank you for NOT breeding! The wolf made me gasp, I have not stopped...

  5. I frequently say "it's a good time to be old." It's hard to imagine how the future can be anything but desolate. We're in Arizona where the housing growth continues at a furious pace, but the water supplies do not.
