The Green Scream
Gerry Gleason 2014.
Billboard Size.

What colour is a scream, or the effect it leaves on us? In this case I have chosen green as if nature itself is screaming at our abuse of its eco system.
The figure is repeated like an echo. Munch’s “Scream”, he intimated was a scream ripping through nature.
This work was inspired by Sergei Eisenstein’s “Battleship Potemkin”, bringing together Bacon and the nurse on the Odessa steps in photomontage, repeated in the tradition of Warhol.
