Global warming is harming every part of the world.
Temperatures are rising, glaciers are melting. This is melting the ice floes, but it is also diminishing the hunting ability of glacial animals, especially seals. The destruction of life in the poles is also a major threat to living species. Carmen Schlieker wants to face the harsh reality of this life. Among all the universal sensitivities of art, the helplessness of the polar bear and its grief to extinction form the main theme of the artist's painting.
This call, which turns into a cry for the polar bear, is once again a visual symphony of our inability to touch lives in a world where communication possibilities have increased incredibly. The fantastic beauty of the polar bear only amplifies its violence when its lineage is threatened. Is a photograph or painting there to create a frozen image of the last remaining polar bear?
For Carmen Schlieker, it's not.
She has a sensibility that follows the image of the painting she created with the dedication of being an artist, offering an interiority in the pursuit of true art. The fluidity of the polar bear and its environment is shown with great lyricism. If this were not the case, the dominance of white, gray, and blue would not gradually fade into brown and green, evoking extinction. Schlieker succeeds perfectly in establishing her artistic vision.
