Deadpan Comedy

Samuel Gomez's avatar Samuel Gomez

This triptych drawing is a surreal graphic satire in which, instead of depicting the ‘ideally wished’ landscape of the future of nature, Samuel Gomez showcases the very things that are preventing us from moving forward and coexisting with nature in a responsible manner. The first and third panels depict corporations and a capitalist system, the interests that he believes are stopping us from a sustainable future. The center panel is the harvest, an allegorical place where we all come to harvest our dreams, wishes, desires, and goals. It features a clockwork casino with a dandelion flower made of bubbles as the source. People gather here to work, whistling away their dreams. Some dreams grow and some dreams burst, but all of the dreams together make up the intricate landscape of human emotions.
