In Blue Death

In Blue Death – Acrylic on PVC sheeting  Lee Rapira 2018

This work is a representation of the declining health of our rivers and streams.  The cascading black crosses indicate a dark and gloomy past; questionable practices that have led to the demise of the water quality.  The shimmering deep blue recalls a time of well being but the end is near. In Blue Death is a reminder that water is valuable and that life can only sustain itself if managed well.

This is a 2D adaptation of my 3D work Te Mate Purū
