The Vacuum

The Vacuum

Collagraph on Velin Arches paper

Framed / 70 x 50cm





This reminds me of what some people think of climate change. It shows that some people think that it’s not a big deal and it doesn’t need to change but then there are some people that think everything's wrong about our climate. I notice how the artist has thrown it out there that it’s all dark and black. What stands out is that it’s a vacuum cleaner as if they are going to vacuum everything up that needs to be changed in their opinion. It makes me feel surprised that people look at climate change that way because I can imagine that there are lots of people that want change but don’t have a big enough voice to speak up for themselves. This painting makes me think about standing up for others.
