The Last Tree. Daniel Loveday Daniel Loveday
   
This could have been titled The Money Eaters, it's based on the famous saying:'When the last tree Is cut down, the last fish eaten, and the last stream poisoned, you will realise that you cannot eat money'The painting is a metaphor for environmental destruction. So when the last tree is left standing what's the best course of action? A corporation buys it, puts it on display and charges people for the privilege of seeing it. The sky is a polluted dirty orange beyond the dome, whilst inside the audience sit silently as witnesses in a court who won't speak, they are subdued with a light show of the creatures that might once have existed alongside the tree. Others in the front have purchased money with their last grains of food from a heavily guarded vendor, having been persuaded by the man in the suit that money is good to eat.
