Artist's description:

History repeatedly demonstrates that, as intelligent as we humans are, we are still unable
to comprehend the valuable lesson in the demise of previously ‘advanced’ civilizations.
This painting is a metaphor for the mindless consumerism which is rapidly devouring
us – in our endless greed and avarice, we seem to be unable or unwilling to face
the inevitable conclusion of the destruction of our way of life as we know it. If we don’t
curb our plundering of the planet’s resources in the short term then we will certainly find
ourselves in ‘a hard place’, bereft of comfort and terrifyingly aware of our naked vulnerability in a hostile environment.
