Metamorfosis de Mariupol / Mariupol Metamorphosis

Digital Painting: Metamorfosis de Mariupol / Mariupol Metamorphosis

About the Painting

Garr created this painting for an Earth Day 2022 art exhibition. It is one of a pair of paintings that were exhibited (the other is Hábitat Natural en Camino / Natural Habitat in Change).

Originally, I had only planned on showing one painting. However, while painting “Natural Habitat in Change by Humans”, I was horrified by the images on the news about the war in Ukraine. In my opinion, this is a humanitarian crisis on a scale not seen since World War II.

Because of this, it occurred to me that humans are not only damaging/changing the natural environment, but our own urban habitat as well. This is only one recent and extreme example...

The left side of this painting depicts the beauty of the grand city of Mariupol as it was before the invasion, morphing into the image on the right showing Mariupol afterwards — a bombed-out carcass of what it once was.

A lone child, lost and clutching a Teddy Bear helps emphasise the human impact and catastrophe.

As this unjust invasion has progressed, more and more of Ukraine looks like the left side of this painting. This is a colossal tragedy!
