Surface coal mine Bilina, Czech republic. Work from series "Anthropocene"
Mixed media : Asphalt, coal, oil painting, natural ochre and metalic pigments on canvas.
In the cycle "Anthropocene" I deal with
the relationship between man and the landscape. I deal with the ability, that
human society has acquired over the last few centuries, the ability to
transform the landscape to human needs on a vast scale, often regardless of the
possible consequences of that transformation. This transformation of the landscape
then changes not only its external appearance, but ultimately also the
functioning of the landscape within the vast territories and on the entire
planet Earth. If it's good or bad, I leave it for the viewer to decide for now.
This work is one of the paintings in the
Anthropocene series. The picture shows the landscape of the surface mine Bilina
in Czechia, where brown coal is mined. This coal is then converted into
electricity at a nearby power plant. I
collect coal from this area and used it into the picture. The brown colour is
represented by synthetic asphalt, which is also produced by coal processing. Metallic pigment refers to the artificial
landscape and natural pigment to the rest of nature in it.
