From the artist

The work attempts to convey the fragility of the surface of the Earth and the nature of human interaction with this surface. The noted absence of human settlement begs the question of the destructive nature of humanity in this relationship. This beautiful tragedy is reflected in the dark brooding isolated landscape of an internal fantasy.
