About the Artwork:

“For this painting and most of the work I make are either post apocalyptic or dystopian in nature with a touch of surrealism. This painting shows a snail as envoy, carrying a snake in a protective cloche. The snake itself being a symbol of transformation. Out of the snakes mouth hangs the doomsday clock with an all seeing eye hovering overtop with its view forward looking to either a post catastrophe existence or an enlightened future society in harmony with its surroundings.” – Drew Mosley

“The Doomsday Clock is a symbol that represents how close we are to destroying the world with dangerous technologies of our own making. It warns how many metaphorical “minutes to midnight” humanity has left. Set every year by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, it is intended to warn the public and inspire action.”

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Drew Mosley forms fantastical narratives inspired by the study of natural history, anthropology, ancient civilizations and social evolution. His works tie together contemporary concerns of collapsing ecosystems, hyper-consumerism, and capitalism in surrealist narratives. Played out across Mosley’s canvases are stories of misguided notions of wealth and social status. In a world with an uncertain future, the characters populating Mosley’s fairy-tale environments offer examples of empathy, community and reverence for nature. Mosley’s overall oeuvre speaks to a desire for a shared existence with greater environmental and social consciousness.
