Venice Biennale 350 Project: May you live in interesting times.

I'm bringing paintings on paper to gift people at the Venice Biennale as a way to share my confrontation between land and sea.

The title of this Exhibition could be interpreted as a sort of curse – stated President Paolo Baratta - where the expression “interesting times” evokes the idea of challenging or even “menacing” times, but it could also simply be an invitation to always see and consider the course of human events in their complexity...

The City of Venice has been struggling for decades to save herself from encroaching water. In these "interesting" times our world needs to embrace innovation and technologies to keep environmental balance.

The ocean 

- Creates more than half of our oxygen via plankton.

- Drives weather systems.

- Modulates the atmosphere.

- Provides vital resources.

If the ocean dies, we will die with it. 

The time is now to balance the atmosphere.

350 is a tipping point for safe levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. 

We have now reached over 415, which is the highest level in the history of measurement.
