New Release — Under Every Desert a Sea
This artwork is the first of a short series which identifies the elephant in the room — the anthropocene — human damage. It’s the time after the ice caps have melted, the torrent has fallen, the sun is expanding, the sea is evaporating and humanity has gone.

Flaxton’s newest creation, Under Every Desert a Sea is centered around the theme of geological time. The creation began its life with images from the Mojave desert which Flaxton severely abstracted to give the impression of rippling water.
