“Today, life, our life is just a link in a chain of innumerable living beings that have succeeded one another on Earth over nearly 4 billion years. Our Earth relies on a balance in which every being has a role to play and it exists only through the existence of another being; a subtle, fragile harmony that is easily shattered. What do we know about life on Earth? How many species are we aware of? A tenth of them? A hundredth of them? What do we know about the bonds that link them? The Earth is a miracle. Life remains a mystery. In the great adventure of life on Earth, every species has a role to play, every species has its place. None is futile of harmful. They all balance out. That is where you, homo sapiens, wise human, enter the story. You benefit from a fabulous 4-billion-year-old legacy bequeathed by the Earth.” What will you do with it? Will you crush it into the burning flames of your insatiable desire to control it or will you protect it, nurture it and help it grow? You are the responsible one. The decision is yours to make.- Home (2009), documentary by Yann Arthus-BertrandThis painting was exhibited at: - The Brick Lane Gallery in London, UK (October 2016) - Favela Cafe, Vilassar de mar, Spain (May - Aug 2018)
