Obviously, in its palette, it’s a cold piece – a frozen snapshot of time. Maybe it’s a vision of the future somehow – all life gone. The vague, destroyed bridge across the landscape, pretty much defying sense or physics in a surreal mirage. Perhaps it’s a message or a warning that we should be helping each other more – listening and understanding more, being more giving, more welcoming, connecting more. With all our means of connectivity now… networking, information at the touch of a button, the world becoming smaller… we have become more withdrawn and isolated, angry and confused.
