"People can read into any image anything they want and I’m generally hesitant to talk about what my paintings mean to me personally. I’d rather they have their own meanings in whatever way they resonate with folks. But I’ll make an exception with this one. Stranded is about the concern and anxiety over global warming and it’s obvious immediate impact on our environment and wildlife. The polar bear is directly based on the one on the $2 Canadian coin, so it can also represent the economy. The precarious nature of an economy completely reliant on fossil fuel and non-renewable resources. It can be the Canadian government which is unable to aggressively deal with climate change and detach itself from corporate interests. It can be us, isolated and floating adrift in a sea of uncertainty.
I wanted to create a beautiful graphic that also functions as a reminder to make good choices when it comes to things that impact the environment."
