The fear of nuclear war and consensus of urgency to prevent environmental degradation have been reoccurring headlines within our generation. My paintings focus on the event that humanity has failed to defuse these posed dangers. Research on radiated landscapes of foliage, future inventions, green architecture and post-apocalyptic narratives—especially the Fallout video game series—have aided me in formulating convincing premonitions. Post-apocalyptic narratives often envision a separation of classes. I depict the privileged alienating themselves from the hardships of the majority to illustrate economic inequality within our society.
