Addressing the issue of decay and death,
Yolanda Lengyel depicts a pessimistic
representation of the year “2010”. Figuratively
displaying the fall of human civilization, she
paints a classical style sculpture which is in a
degenerating condition. Notice how the lifeless
tree branches merge with the disintegrating
sculpture, thus expressing the inherent
connection that humans have with the earth. It is
inevitable that all human beings must eventually
return to the earth when they die. But even
amongst the destruction, life continues on.
Flowers bloom and continue with their seasonal
cycles. Even after humans have left the earth,
Mother Nature will continue to prosper.
