MESSAGE: Excessive use of resources - destroys the ecological system of our planet DESCRIPTION: The work is created with participation of the Russian artist N. Prima. In the painting a razor, symbolically, cuts our planet`s goldmines, representing our excessive use of the resources of the Earth and brutally cutting the vital arteries. Around a black lifeless space filled with only gold dust. Gold is unique, loved during
history as a symbol of power and wealth. Now it can also be used for health. Scientists
can make gold with two-dimensional atomic structure that can strengthen
immunity and treat serious illnesses like cancer.
The idea behind the work is that Gold, like many natural resources should not
only make us focus on money - it should also create good life and health for
everyone, without risking our ecology and future..
Today we destroy our earth when searching and extracting Gold. We dramatically change
our landscapes with big machines, waste and without care of our nature, environmental protection is not a priority. Around gold mines we have
destroyed forests, rivers, animals and fishes are dying. Mining companies leave mountains of waste and a water
of toxic slurry with cyanide's and other dangerous
chemicals. Our short-term focus on profits risk to jeopardize our future - a
very high prize.
