"Holocene"

Bowen Kline's avatar Bowen Kline

The Holocene encompasses the growth and impacts of the human species worldwide and its impact on modern-era Earth. This painting depicts a young man seated in nature. He can be considered a symbol of the future. His decisions will effect his surroundings permanently. His gaze to the right shows the forward path that human society is inevitably heading towards. I'm reminded of a quote by Robert Frost "The Afternoon knows what the morning never suspected." We have the power to change our future and become apart of this world instead of conquering it.
