Evolution by Alexis Rockman
This painting is called Evolution by Alexis Rockman. It is an oil on wood painting that is 96 x 288 inches. I found this work very interesting as you can look at it for a long time and always find something new. There seems to be hundreds of different species of animals. Once you get passed being amazed at all the details you can look at the big picture and find the meaning behind it. It shows the water and air that is polluted and how the animals are effected by it. Some of them end up being extinct. This painting is Rockman's way of showing us how polluting effects the environment and how bad it really is.
