The figures from a classic Norman Rockwell artwork, interacting with our present day climate disasters. New Neighbors features flooding and rising tides due to extreme weather. This image was inspired by Hurricane Sandy and Katrina.
Climate hazards such as extreme weather, droughts, floods, wildfires and sea level rise are the biggest threats to our infrastructure, health and security. These threats are intensifying. Climate experts have reached the conclusion that if not stemmed by 2030, the earth’s temperature will spike to a point of no return. In the wake of this climate hazards, such as those listed above, will be our daily reality.
No other American artist in history has done more to shape our national identity than Norman Rockwell. During his prolific career, he became known as an artist who addressed serious issues. In addition, humor and wit were central aspects of his character, as well as his artworks.
Rockwell 2040 takes the playful figures from Norman Rockwell’s artworks and places them in an environment ravaged by climate hazards. The figures are presented as black and white ‘ghosts’ against a full color landscape. This was done, not only to emphasize the catastrophes that await us, but as a way for the past to interact with our present day realities. The end result is a mix of humor and horror, nostalgia and nightmare.
Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. I made the artworks in Rockwell 2040 to ask a seminal question; is it too late to stop this fate?
