Temme Barkin-Leeds - 12 Best

Statement

As a followup to my work about violent video games, my mixed media paintings also deal with the world-wide refugee crisis. These crises arise from wars, which can be the result of antagonistic factions over lack of water, or they arise from dislocation and relocation of people due to flooding, famine, drought, or other climate-caused events. 12 BEST is a reminder that often the discrepancy in income inequality and the happenstance of where one resides further determines human fates. The backdrop for this painting is a video game, where the player can just start over, but this may not be possible in a situation of upheaval due to climate change.
