Temperature rise and Pollution.
The Beach Party. Mid Panel. 2009.
Gerry Gleason.
acrylic on canvas

This painting was partly inspired by listening to 'The Beach Boys Holland CD'. a surprisingly early
interest by them in eco systems. The beach guard, an Orwellian figure complete with CCTV carries a
temperature gauge and a warning toxic. The youth has caught a fish that is maybe uneatable. The old
woman wears a Venetian plague mask. A young woman sits besides a toy boat its name is the Titanic.
The actions of the human species are all interlinked with the planet we all share. I feel that the financial
meltdown will affect all these things with less money around for governments to spend on actions needed to preserve this earth we live on for future generations.
