Where are the green areas
In my town there is a common. It is a large green area which has a unique biodiversity. Around it are grouped houses of the suburbs. If you stand in the middle of this green space you hardly hear the traffic even though it roars around all sides of the green square.
The need for low-cost housing in my area is a reality. How long will this green square last before it is swamped by another colour, another shape.
My latest group of paintings explore this space as if from a point above the earth. Will this space stay sacredly green or will the encroachments that threaten it win the battle?
I played with this idea and these are the results.
