Description

"Trypophobia is a proposed fear of “irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps.” I noticed myself having a visceral reaction when seeing images of this nature. An explanation resonated with me stating this reaction could be a defence mechanism alerting to poisonous elements in the environment. Various poisonous plants, animals and food sources exist which have this patterning.

What I wish to bring to focus in this painting is the awareness of self destructive patterns of behaviour upon the environment. More specifically in regards to the fossil fuel industry. The elements of water air and earth are threatened in the process of fossil fuel extraction. Visible detrimental changes to the environment and health are evident. I feel there needs to be an energetic metamorphosis in order to ensure the well being of future generations and all living creatures.”
