Temple Children congratulates its Art Director David 'MEGGS' Hooke on the launch of his new series of painting and sculptures, 'Paving Paradise.' This series centers around the duality of human relationships with the natural environment and the man-made, constructed environment. It questions our effect on the planet's rapidly diminishing natural resources, and where our values lie as living beings on this planet. The artworks represent the notion that industry and development are approaching a point of no return. By producing too much in terms of development, technology, and material goods, MEGGS conveys that humanity is losing fundamental connections with its natural surroundings and resources, thus losing connections with each other. Overall, this collection references this troubling trade-off.
We are extremely proud to announce that Temple Children will continue to facilitate this series, providing new avenues and mediums for MEGGS to experiment with. Stay tuned and follow MEGGS on Instagram to see what else he's been up to.
