As we have already glimpsed and will continue to discover

As we have already glimpsed and will continue to discover, we are able to expand our awareness beyond the perceived limitations of our own person – Ervin László

Portrait in Oils by Gavin Bloor, Cornwall UK

Ecological concepts of continuity and interdependence are renegade forces. They not only transform existing patterns of material consumption and production, they destabilize social values and disrupt aesthetic conventions. Even the notion of beauty is overhauled by the ecological mandate to embrace all aspects of the life cycle – decay as well as growth. Artists who demonstrate radical beauty are renegade aestheticists. They demonstrate that the greening of society depends as much upon revising human values as reforming human behaviors.
