ART STATEMENT FOR “INSPIRATION”

by Thom Wright, 2017

Our historic past, the present on the cusp, and the uncertain future

Mankind and Nature are now at war with each other

Humanity’s growth, pollution and destruction seem uncontrollable

Consequently, Climate Change seems unstoppable

But this coming catastrophe is self-generated, and potentially reversible

With new technologies, new behaviors and adaptations

Inspire leaders and us to find directions, take actions and set limits

Without succumbing to global internecine war

Eventually to reach a sustainable and interdependent balance
