After a 7-year hiatus, Tonio Mallia presents a new series of works that re-imagine a world shaken beyond its tipping point, where the tensions between the human and natural world are no longer at play, nor are they creative or life-giving.
They have devolved into a tyrannical order in which mankind becomes subject to its own freedoms. Humanity turns its back on itself when it turns its back on nature, misappropriating and exploiting it, corrupting its beauty into a place of war—bellum—the war that destroys the world, the war waged by man who, no longer a steward of the earth, abandons the scales and becomes death, as Oppenheimer would say. In the empty fairgrounds and the desolate fields, in the mangled trees and the rising seas, in the plague infested skies and desperate flights, here is mankind—our humanity—hanging in the balance.
