Did somebody say... ...Just Stop Oil?

I support the Just Stop Oil campaign. Their cause is a just one. They are protesting for the good of humankind.

“Oil is causing the climate and cost of living crisis, making us poorer and destroying everything we love.”

We do need to end our dependence on fossil fuels, and fast!

As an artist I also don't have a problem with the just stop oil protests directed at galleries. Stop treating old art like it's something precious. All art is ephemeral. Don't blame the protesters, the problem lies with those that have turned art into a commodity. Capitalists, and governments that serve them. Who's going to look at art when the last human dies because we've destroyed our environment? Priorities. The human race needs to get its priorities right!
