Art Works > Global Warming Series. Gerry Gleason. 2021-22. Supported by The Arts Council of N. Ireland (Creative Individuals Recovery Programme Grant).

Leonardo da Vinci was a great observer of Nature, from his marvellous drawings we can see how he noted the behaviour of flowing water and eddy currents. I have used his observations of water to imagine the disastrous flooding due to Global Warming that is already occurring and will be worse as the climate heats up. The old man struggles to contain the deluge.
