Through doing research on nature I came across the title ‘Nature Reclaiming’ where I found a range of photos showing the impact of nature reclaiming the world. I found doing research on this interesting, and this helped me come to the decision to create a project based on this title. This series focuses on how nature gradually starts to reclaim a part of the world when theirs no sign of human life. I used acrylic on canvas to create all three of these paintings.
My series begins with a dark and gloomy apocalyptic image showing nature starting to grow through the cracks and ditches of a huge hole in the ground.
With the beauty of nature beginning its process of growth, the second image appears more vivid since nature is appearing to manifest. The sun is also making its first appearance through the clouds.
The final image shows the beauty of nature at its full growth, with grass and flowers blooming in the cracks, and different colours overwhelming the gloominess the image once appeared. Blue sky can be seen for the first time and this image gives a sense of cheerfulness.
