Threatened Planet




This environmental art piece is a mashup of two vintage art classics, The Threatened Swan, by Jan Asselijn c. 1650 and Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night, c. 1889. The work is a great allegory of our current environmental woes featuring a courageous and protective white swan (the awake, aware, and courageous environmental activists on the planet) fiercely defending our planet (our fragile, life-giving, life-sustaining ecosystem) from climate change and environmental pollution caused by greed, corporations, and unsustainable governmental regulations.



The Starry Night aspect of the mashup represents (1) the insanity aspect of the world we live in now, as Vincent Van Gogh painted this masterpiece during his stay in an asylum; (2) the dreamy, ethereal aspect vs. the "real world" which is represented in Starry Night, however also reflects our unreal political debates on the validity of climate change (seriously, it's real); and (3) our efforts to protect, clean and preserve our planet (from air pollution, light pollution and so on) to be able to look up and view a brilliant starry night now and far into the future.
