There was a competition which requested artists to produce a piece of art work with this title. Gauguin first used this title in 1887/8, when he painted what he considered to be his most important work. I could not afford to transport this painting, which is fairly large, so I decided not to enter. But the offer of entering this competition got me thinking…and I produced this painting. It is about the conflict of the present and the future. It is about the age in which we live and the amazing changes we are seeing. It is a celebration of change but also a warning…a warning to keep all things in harmonious balance. We must not let our dreams turn into nightmares.
