The artistic process

This waterfall symbolizes the fresh water that flows down our watersheds, contaminated by the pollutants collected by wastewater and stormwater. The beauty of the falling water contrasts with the blackness of the Indian ink at the bottom of the painting. Chemicals are everywhere: more than 20 million substances marketed in the world, 300 million tons per year of chemicals manufactured . Organic water pollution is also omnipresent: one person out of two does not have access to sanitation.
