'...it is easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism.'
'The title of this painting references critic, philosopher and political theorist Fredric Jameson's words and interrogates ideas of consumption, productivity and growth that frames current existential issues of climate change.
'Using watercolour and painted on the back of a clear acrylic sheet, the work delicately depicts over-reaching creepers and vines viewed literally through the screen-like lens of the acrylic. The monochromatic photography reference underscores a moment in time.'
