Decomposition of Ancient Organisms
"Buried dead organisms, layers of plants hundreds of millions of years old. Ancient sunshine trapped in the soil, the power of the sun stored in black oil and coal. The energy of two suns now released on the world."
Handmade wood support oil painted in several layers and then burnt. The inner window background is made up of a dyed resin made to resemble volcanic rock. The centrepiece is natural coal.
