Artwork description:

In this painting I show man's sleepwalk into oblivion. Here, the precipice of the climate crisis is far behind; the earth is disintegrating into an apocalypse of oil and fire. And still the planet's resources continue to be drilled and extracted and burnt and squandered: those with the power to change, instead ignore reality. In the foreground, a human figure consumed by flames grasps at its money - still the only measure of success of which he can conceive.
