Mother nature provides and sustains our life. It is our responsibility to take care of Her, not just for us, but for future generations to come on this planet.

Environment destruction has been happening across the world in the name of business and development. Though we need development, only development at the cost of nature which is necessary for our survival is suicidal. Many peopler across the world are fighting for the cause.

NY-based artist Alison Moritsugu is one such activist and she is unique in her ways. Basically a painter, she paints idyllic, pastoral landscapes on logs and stumps as part of her beautiful commentary on how we look at and treat the environment.

Moritsugu’s paintings emulate the optimistic style of the 18th and 19th centuries, but “by viewing the painting’s surface, the cross section of a tree, any sense of nostalgia or celebration of nature is countered by the evidence of its destruction,” she writes in her artist’s statement.

She uses this beautiful but jarring juxtaposition to critique how we portray the environment in media. “Today, photoshopped images of verdant forests and unspoiled beaches invite us to vacation and sightsee, providing a false sense of assurance that the wilderness will always exist. By exploring idealized views of nature, my work acknowledges our more complex and precarious relationship with the environment.” Naturally, Moritsugu paints on naturally-fallen lumber.
