"Don't Say We Didn't Warn You" is a look into a possible and perhaps inevitable future where hardship is constant, but the human spirit carries on. In imagining the future one only has to look towards past events. The Economic depression of the 1930s, in particular the Great Dust Bowl of the southern plains, was a tremendous calamity with ravaging economic and social consequences. It is also important to point out that of the transformed landscape was the result of mankind's misunderstanding of the environment.
In this show Christopher Konecki and Keemowerks explore the irony and dark humor of human behavior. We destroy that which we need to survive. We see our resources dwindling and yet waist more. The artists have focused on the symbiotic relationship between mankind and nature. By drawing this connection they hope to entertain and enlighten audiences and to some extent do their respective parts to insure this future world never becomes reality.
The opening reception for "Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You" will be held at Thumbprint Gallery on December 10, 2011 from 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM. The exhibit will be on display through January 1, 2011 and is free and open to the public. Google Map.
