This Earth Icons series is a journey through art history, because Art from centuries past can still talk to us, and have great meaning today. This series, by California artist Charles Lynn Bragg, uses the world’s most iconic images to remind us that we all must become aware that our planet Earth is fragile, and needs our love and more attention.
Mankind has found myriad ways of exploiting the Globe’s many resources but has spent far too little effort and energy preserving and protecting our Mother Earth. By using well-known images that easily capture our attention and imagination, Bragg fuses his love of Art with his love of life and Nature. His Earth Icons series reaches out from the early cave paintings, through the Renaissance, the old European masters, from Realism to Cubism to Abstract Impressionism. Examining their messages and giving them a humorous or ironic twist we find a deeper understanding of their message and power in the context of our Planet in peril.
“I am obsessed with images of the Earth from space,” says Bragg. “It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen, and I am always trying to place it in my compositions. Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup can gets a make-over that suggests we need to “can the rhetoric” and get busy preserving Mother Earth herself.
