Artwork Description

Technology and the skull. The symbolism of the skull is death, however this is shown from the side, so death can be delayed, or averted... Death is looking in another direction, distracted by the power and immediacy of our technology. The fact that the skull is 'made' from technology is a statement about man's current dependence on technology and how it will become such a part of us that it will be indistinguishable, or even supplant entirely our original organic roots. Apocalyptic hints of our messing with things we perhaps shouldn't, or at the very least, perhaps are diving in a bit too quickly.

Painted in Photoshop with a Wacom digitizing tablet.
