Solastalgia

Acrylic on canvas. 40 x 30 inches

also known/titled as Ecological Grief

Solastalgia is a new concept developed to give greater meaning and clarity to environmentally induced distress.

This painting evokes memories, dreams, and elusive hopes adrift in the uncertain ether of change. The central kayak motif (indicative of human presence, culture, sustainability) seeks passage through time and space in the midst of far-reaching, global upheaval and uncertainty.
