Jill Letten: Watching the World Burn

Recontextualizing imagery from the 1950s to a modern context through digital manipulation, the painted scenes in Watching the World Burn encapsulate narratives of climate change, industrialization, mass consumerism, and societal ignorance. The body of work asks the viewer to question if society has changed or progressed in any meaningful way that we have achieved sustainable balance in our interactions with the earth and environment.
