I am never not struck by the incredible beauty of this planet we call home any time Mr. Forager and I are out hiking. It is amazing to think of the way this earth evolves, adapts, endures. In these beautiful mixed media paintings, Australian artist Megan Weston, in her own words “presents our earth as fragile and damaged by our selfish behavior, but also demonstrates that its beauty still survives“.
Inspired by aerial landscapes, these mixed media paintings seem to whirl and swirl within their planetary atmosphere. Just as the earth is filled with wonder and variety, Weston’s work leads the viewer on an imaginary journey around its circumference. We don’t know if we’re looking at storm systems brewing from above or microscopic views of tiny bits of our planet. As the colors bleed and blend, we are left with the assurance that no matter how we abuse it, this ever changing earth will endure long after we have left it.
