Our true Guardian Angel, nature, is fading away.

We are corroding its wings through our actions.

Change needs to happen but we have to do it together.

I wanted to go a bit further with my art in this one: to take a step towards a seemingly simplistic way with hidden elements. This work is one of my favourites. My beloved angel looks so vulnerable and delicate that it easily grows on you. You suddenly might have the urge to help him, to put him out of his misery. Maybe we should transfer those feelings towards helping nature as though it was our guardian angel in need of help.
