The Trees are Breathing

The Trees are Breathing

“THE TREES ARE BREATHING”
WATER COLOR ON PAPER
12 x 18 in © 1989 GABRIEL NAVAR

This painting is a sort of meditation about how nature has been “attacked” by our encroaching polluting populations. The anthropomorphized tree has a balloon on its head suggesting symbolically that nature is breathing… it is alive…. however here, this threatened form is on the brink of its last breaths as it stands alone in an ever-expanding wasteland… a dry, empty post-apocalyptic,  overly “carbon-footprinted” desert.
