oil on canvas; 30×40″

“We relentlessly take from our planet in order to make our experience more pleasurable, but what happens when nothing gets replenished? The only thing we have to offer are the plastics and materials we have thrown out, leaving a temple blocking out what used to be a vast landscape.”

ARTIST BIO: Devon Horton is an oil painter working in Northern Kentucky and her newest series “Penchant” confronts our culture’s obsession with consumption and waste. Each painting features a foreboding pile of trash which relates to a tradition or ritual imbedded in our daily lives and society.
