An interesting theme, because it can be interpreted both positively and negatively

The Theme Scorched Earth

The theme Scorched Earth is a very interesting concept. It can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Both positively and negatively. As with most things in life we are constantly searching for a balance between the positive and the negative.

 

Quote Solomon Leong Scorched Earth Article on Thursd.

 

Dystopian Romance

The idea of a Scorched Earth conjurers images of dry and arid, scorched by the piercing rays of the sun. It is sad in a way, but yet we can find some kind of dystopian romance about the yellow and orange landscape.

In these works that I present, I hope I offer you a variety of possibilities to interpret the theme of Scorched Earth. I believe it is a call to search for a balance between nature and culture, to strike an equilibrium between progress and preservation, development, and sustainability.

Combining dried hydrangeas with life flippers orchids (Paphiopedilum). In shades of brown and faded blue, it’s a subtle way to combine texture and colors in a sophisticated way.

A ring of shredded wood veneer surrounds a fine line of the lily-of-the-valley (Convallaria). I believe this makes a striking remark on the encroachment of urbanization against nature
