Gods of a New Age
Watercolour on paper
Inspired both conceptually and technically by the works of Lora Zombie and Cherry Hood, my series of watercolour portraits, Gods of a New Age, depicts the link between our natural environment and the development of humanity. Each deity represents a different attribute inspired by nature: spirituality through flight, industry with progress, knowledge working with science, and thought developing potential. I chose each aspect specifically as I believe that they are the most relevant to current society where we must embrace so many changes in our technology and environmental awareness.
