New dawn

This piece includes collage work from Salvador Dali’s Geopolitical Child.

It symbolises the need to redefine development, success and what it means to be a modern society. While Dali tried to represent the birth of the new man in an age of capitalist success and granduer, post WW II, I’ve distorted this image of the man to represent the amount of damage we cause, as the human race, to the planet and its inhabitants (including ourselves) in modern times. The image of the woman with the open heart represents,”The Mother” i.e birth and hope; and about how unlearning and relearning certain values we have so deeply imbedded in our society could possibly save us.
