“Several of my paintings being exhibited in the Clark Gallery booth at Art Miami are about climate change (and sea level rise) as are many of my paintings over the past decade or so, starting with my “Eden Series,” which depicted a new species struggling to evolve in a post-apocalyptic Garden of Eden. The lobster paintings reference Shiva, the many-limbed Hindu god of both creation and destruction. The lobster is also a metaphor for the male stereotype, with its protective exo-skeleton and soft interior. I’ve also been struck by how lobsters have had to continually migrate north because of climate change—that was my thinking behind SHIVA: Northern Nocturne.”
