The Origins / Progressionby Sara Cannon Art
ABOUT THE ART
This piece is about the birth of mankind and how we've progressed into the society that we've created for ourselves. The anatomical figure shows the gut - in an otherwise slender body - contrasting beauty with ugliness. The blood shows streams of effort and life force that we've put into trying to form our society. In the background, there is a suburban neighborhood planning map on top of a fertilized human egg - representing the cycle of reproduction and our domination over land. The pigeon on the woman's hand gives us hope through all of this. Hope that as a society we can take care of this world.
