Consumerism, a bitter seed festering in the hearts of many, a look at Luca Ledda
Modern culture teaches us that to consume is to feel, that the resources of this earth are here simply to provide us with the objects and food that makes life worth living, or so we were led to believe. In this reflective series of murals, Luca Ledda ( a Turin artist ) is challenging our perceptions of our overconsumption. With elements such as food, plants, and overweight creatures. Luca paints a picture of a man’s relationship with his or her environment.
There is no doubt that Fossil fuels, deforestation, and overconsumption of food damage our habitat. But what about our notion of ourselves? How do our habits contribute to our internal discord? In the murals, the cosmic projections ( oftentimes pictured protruding from an opening in the forehead of the creatures ) may represent our life force ( the very thing that keeps us grounded ) being clouded by our inherent need for instant gratification.
Will we as the human race achieve total unity with each other and our environment? Or will we continue on this destructive path? Only time will tell. Maybe these murals by Luca will serve as a reminder of our desperate need for change.
