A Trope for the Anthropocene

My ongoing work engages with the current conversation regarding the global entry into the Anthropocene epoch; humans are effecting the earth and its atmosphere, and human activities are changing the climate.

I have referenced paintings of atmospheres, from each century since the 16th century, as my source material for my work. The collage records the colours of the atmospheres. The body of the work results from my trope of the Anthropocene.
