Useful  Fear

There are some things in life which it is important to fear, in order to project our own survival and the survival of our planet. These are mainly things within nature, such a dangerous animals, dangerous weather, dangerous plants and exposure to man made dangers such as chemicals and pollutants. The best way to know what fear is unnecessary and what fear is necessary, is to improve our knowledge about real dangers and take steps to limit any possible damage to ourselves and the world around us.

My painting shows an image of a harp with a devils face, vomiting out a thunder bolt and passing a polluted wind of noxious gas. It relates to the many ‘top secret’ projects which are a threat to the world, being undertaken by those in power. Possibly one of the worst is the HAARP weather project, which has also been called ‘The Devil’s HAARP’ by activists, seeking to protect the planet from further damage, (see various activist sites on the web for further details). We all have a responsibility to act to make sure our planet is respected and to take action, when we have genuine fears about the survival of the planet and the ecosystems that make up our world. It is all ultimately part of us and our cycle of life. We cannot destroy the planet without, at the same time, destroying a part (if not all) of ourselves.
