“Duplicity of Life” in which the Artists explores the opposites, such as yin & yang, war & peace, love & hate, rich & poor, life & death.
This work has been inspired by the programe "Earth from Space" aired on ITV in UK on 8th May 2019 (see second from last image), that features the deforestation of land of the natural habitate of Orangutans to make Palm Oils for domestic goods.
"...Palm oil is found in an estimated 10 percent of U.S. groceries — it’s in chips, crackers, candy, margarine, cereals and canned goods. About 40 millions tons of palm oil, which is considered the cheapest cooking oil in the world, is produced each year, and 85 percent of it comes from Indonesia and Malaysia..."
This particular work deals with the contrast between “Palm Oils" and Orangutans in Binary Code. The "O"in Orangutans are highlighed in Orange and the "Palm Oils" in Green. This work is for Earth Day which was on 22nd April 2019.
Also inspired by the Christmas Iceland Advert Palm Oil available on you tube.
Earth Day occurs each year to highlight enviromental issues, reating to the Earth and covers insects, animals, birds, fish etc.
This work has been inspired by programme “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” which is an American reality competition show in which up-and-coming Artists compete for a Solo Show at the Brooklyn Museum.
In Series 1 Episode 8 “Opposites Attract” the Artists are to make a work of art based on opposites such as, heaven & hell, male & female, order & chaos. (available on youtube)
