Adrian Owen "Gaia Alesco"

Adrian Owen is a Cape Town based professional artist specialising in fine art, portraiture and illustration. His latest work is based on geophysiology, the study of interaction among living organisms on the Earth, operating under the hypothesis that the Earth itself acts as a single living organism.

"The Gaia theory implies; there is no longer any need to consider the evolution of the species separately from the evolution of their environment. The two processes are tightly coupled as a single indivisible process. It is not enough merely to say that the organism that leaves the most progeny succeeds. Success also depends upon coherent coupling between the evolution of the organism and evolution of its material environment."

As expressed by James E. Lovelock

Owen’s Gaia Alesco series explores our consciousness and acknowledgement of the responsibility we owe to the earth and the inheritance bestowed upon us and which we in turn leave in our wake to be inherited. Translated álesco', derived from latin, translates as 'growth' or to 'increase', and Gaia is the personification of the Earth.
