33x44cm. Screenprint on paper. Variable edition of 10. 2012.
Some of my favourite world enders and doom bringers. I survived 2012 and all I made was this lousy screenprint.
I created this work while on study exchange in Montreal at Concordia University. My focus that year was around crazy doomsday predictions for the year 2012. As a whole, our culture seems to be obsessed with the end of the world and maybe that’s why so many fantastic villains are defined by their world destroying desires or capabilities. The likelihood of our world ending by some cataclysmic event seems remote… far more likely that we have a slow demise. But anyway, these villains portrayed in a rudimentary style on soft palette backdrops are a homage to some of the crazier concepts of the world ending.
