‘Earthmover’ – David Knowles


Says artist David Knowles,

_Quote Over thirty years ago I read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. From that I developed a concept of Man as the creator of his environment, and that idea was concretised into an image of a young man controlling a large earth-moving machine.

And here he is. Man the creator. Man, the shaper of his world.  From thought to inception, not by the power of muscles, but by the power of the mind—the power to conceive and create the machinery that can shape his very environment.

Not bad. The guy in the tractor looks like a peasant. As he is depicted, one could take him out of the machine and put him behind a bullock.
