The Painting from Facebook

This turned out to be an interesting piece.  It’s a collage from a ‘call for ideas of what to paint’ query among my Facebook friends. In this sense it is a collective piece, and not my own. Among the donated images I used an elderly woman as the central character, and formed a narrative from there. From what I can see, she abnegates all that which exploits life in an unethical and unsustainable way.
