ABOUT THE ART
"The Global Harmony print incorporates a mandala, a symbol of harmony and wholeness, at the center of a target. The bird and globe engraving suggests the possibility of thinking about the planet’s future with a unified global perspective. The target symbolizes both the aim of constructive paths forward and also the attacks on the acknowledgment of global peril by fossil fuel corporations and the climate change deniers they prop up in politics. Will the flame be the symbol of inspiration or destruction? The choice is ours! A portion of this edition will be sold in Singapore in conjunction with my “The Future is Unwritten” exhibition at Opera Gallery. Greenpeace USA will receive a portion of proceeds from the sale of this print to benefit their efforts to combat climate change."
