This diptych entitled Land of Welcome / Terre d'Accueil is a kind of synthesis of current topics such as recycling, plastic pollution, deforestation, boat and climate refugees. A paradise on earth is under construction. No criteria for being welcomed. They are all in the same boat. And since the captain has left the ship, an orangutan has taken over. With an outstretched arm, from the top of a solitary tree in what was once a tropical forest, the refugees are given a pleasant welcome. Some colorful birds may indicate that the forest is under reconstruction.
Land of Welcome depicts our chaotic world. Yet, hope triumphs over despair: the migrants have managed to cross the borderline; the whale is being hauled on a plastic tarpaulin instead of swallowing it...
