‘Toxic Wednesday’ and ‘Blood Rain Thursday’
The work is a reaction to actual events both natural and man made that creates unusual weather systems and the subsequent consequences they have on the landscape.
Events in the United Kingdom on February 28th & 29th 2019:
When dust clouds from the Saharan desert brought by high winds collided with an Atlantic weather system and man made air pollution they create the perfect storm. The result a toxic smog with an orange to red hue hovers over the United Kingdom. The next day after colliding with the Atlantic storm the dust and smog are released as blood red rain. February 28th & 29th 2019 are days now known as ‘Toxic Wednesday’ and ‘Blood Rain Thursday’.
