John Boone, Paradigm Shift (series) 2012-2021. Acrylic on canvases of various sizes.
In the context of Fire and Ice, Paradigm Shift applies to the changing state of consciousness about the environment, the role of humans changing it to such a degree that it is fundamentally altering the planet’s health and making our world increasingly inhospitable for all forms of life. As are all of the words and phrases in this series, Paradigm Shift is a caption as an artwork, it is spin, it is an animated package designed to engage the curious into a deeper focus on the issues at hand. It was made to be remembered.
