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.
