Moses Ros • Supernaturalmente, 2018 Linocut and chine collé
This print addresses the issue of commodifying water and the environment. The image is of two crumpled up bottles of water swirling around each other. Water in a bottle is not its natural state but is a common way to access this vital life sustaining substance. And so, it has become artificial in a sense, a commodity for sale, a plastic container to be discarded in the oceans. A new problematic cycling of water is taking place, Supernaturalmente attempts to highlight this.
