Flowers and Nuclear Warfare

@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“I Think about the relationship to perception…..seeing is believing.”

In "Flowers and Nuclear Warfare" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16Eric LoPresti makes artwork that examines the imposition of technology upon the environment and the aftermath of the Cold War. His dramatic landscapes juxtapose abstract elements with representations of the vast deserts of the American west, exploring relationships between science, identity, history and conflict. Following in the painterly tradition of the apocalyptic sublime, LoPresti’s artistic practice explores how our lives are shaped by trauma and beauty.

Along the way, they ended up restoring the history of their old country, exposing a new generation to photos of a near unrecognizable Liberia, before rebels and war tore the country apart.
