The Circle. Acrylic on canvas by Roberto Prieto. All Rights Reserved. "The Circle" invites, provokes and stimulates ones imagination to consider its personal views and choices about the use of our resources and overall world ecosystems. The painting presents an alternate view on each other's dependency as a complex ecosystem. Each element on the painting makes reference to some of the mostly abused natural resources by our civilization. The Circle also looks into a future when all elements of life have been depleted and there's nothing else to admire but memories and hunting trophies on walls.
