David ‘MEGGS’ Hooke’s latest body of work deals with the recurring aesthetic of duality, which is an ongoing and underlying theme in all of his artwork. His ‘Paving Paradise’ pop up show is a small glimpse into a new focus of his work and features split images depicting natural purity vs. things that represent the decay and downfall of our environmental resources and mankind as a whole. MEGGS intends that his artworks reflect the Yin and Yang, or that two halves make up a whole.
