The contrast of peaceful beauty of nature in Yucatan, Mexico to what we see everyday in the news about war hot spots around the world, made me think about unevenness of our planet due to political and economical greed which divided world into dotted landscape of big contrasts of people's behavior.
In my painting I try to highlight the hostile pattern of acts using newspapers' clippings of violence eroding the soft bright smears of oil painting by which I illustrate nature's tranquility.
