Cycles of Dominance, 2017

From the artist

This painting is symbolic of our ongoing dominance over the landscape and over a removed race of people. The imminent destruction of this grotesque, yet in some ways beautiful intrusion on the landscape will make way for renewal. The fences, bridges, buildings and other elements that make up this new world we have created will, over time, have the same demise as this landmark in reaffirming this anglicized, controlled landscape we now inhabit.
