The meaning and message of the painting
The artist used bold strokes, together with deep and lifeless colours in a unique way to show the tree and the ground are being terribly destroyed, namely the partly submerged mainland in sea water; the gloomy, heavily polluted atmosphere and the helplessness of animals in the natural disasters. She made an endeavor to awaken humanity by revealing strongly how their irresponsibility caused the nature destruction. Using a simple painting style, Mrs. Nguyen wanted the artwork to pass from “heart to heart”, relaying her love for the environment, like in Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu's words: "People rely on land, land relies on God, God relies on religion, religion replies on nature”. The painting conveys a powerful message about the environment, climate change, the Law of Causality and the Samsara. She aimed at awakening humanity: "let's join hands to protect the green planet and prevent climate change”. This helps us not to suffer from any disastrous consequences with regards to her Buddhist perspective “what goes around comes around”.
The mission of the painting
According to artist Nguyen Kim Duc, she hopes that Cover of Future will be considered as the Brand Ambassador for environment, anti-climate change and also be presented around the world to promote the Green Planet protection in the future.
