Ominous Paintings Show the Catastrophic Future Effects of Our Current Actions
In a dark series called “Portent,” Kerbow paints images of the destruction of nature as cars, scrapyards, industrial complexes and densely packed skyscrapers as far as the eye can see overrun the world.
On his website, Kerbow explains:
My work explores the way in which we engage with our surroundings and the possible consequences our actions have upon the world in which we live. Through my work I attempt to question the rationale of our choices, and try to reveal the dichotomy that may exist between what we desire and what we manifest. Recently my work has focused upon the mechanisms that power our society and examines how they may influence the construct for a possible future.
