This beautiful painting named "Crossfire - Leaf Four" is the fourth of a series of paintings dealing with the theme of environment and man's abuse of nature.
Mankind in its quest for leisure and comfort are destroying the very essence of their ability to survive on Earth, as they are abusing all these natural resources in an impatient way, polluting everything they touch. This isn't something new, as this reminds us of that Greek myth where there was once a king called Midas who prayed and prayed that everything he touched would turn into gold. However, the moment his prayers were answered, he died from thirst and hunger as every time he came to eat and drink, the food and liquid turned to gold. So it seems we humans of today are doing the same, "midasing" everything in our path.
This artwork was produced in 1993, it is acrylic and ink on paper, mounted on canvas and its size is approximately 123cm x 150cm.
