Environment, Water and the Third World
Dream of Prometheus.Rhs Panel. 2009.
Gerry Gleason.
acrylic on canvas

In this painting I have used the Greek myth of Prometheus and gift of fire and the possibility of tool making to empower humankind, Have we abused that gift? we survive by problem solving and no doubt pooling our resources, we should not turn our back on problem solving in the best sense.
When I started the research for the work I was surprised to find out how little fresh water was available for the whole planet. If we do not look after this world no doubt the effects will be felt first by the third world.
Entrepreneurs have been with us from the ice age they quite often drive groups economies forward but with
that comes responsibility.
