After seeing the painting at a recent art exhibition in France, I requested if I might publish an image of the painting. I thank the artist for his agreement and dedication of the painting, Big Earth Mama II, pour Charalee.
As with all art and particularly with surrealist art, one should let the art speak for itself without art commentary. I dare say, however, for me the work appears appropriate for ongoing news stories of our changing planet. With that, I say no more and leave it to the viewers to enjoy the artist´s painting and provide their own interpretations.
