Should We Share; Can We Care
2017, High School, Art
In the news there often are unfortunate events of pollution: not only of air pollution, but that of the ocean as well. Be it garbage or oil, the classic image of a bird choking on a soda 6-pack ring is all too clichéd. My drawing highlights both human filthy trash floating in water in the foreground, and disgusting rainbow oil rings in the background. Using colored pencil and ink, I created a very dirty duck that pulls a paper boat filled with little sea creatures desperate for help to safety. It should not be the duck’s duty to save these animals from our harm. It should be our duty to save these creatures, before the harm hurts us too. Ocean pollution makes me feel unsatisfied with the amount of effort we humans have on behalf of the seas. I support nature awareness to prevent us from doing more harm on the earth.
