Literature & references:

David Sequiera, James Gleeson: Microcosms and Macrocosms, Latrobe Regional Gallery, 2015:
"The paintings of James Gleeson reveal powerful and complex relationships between the human psyche and human experience – between myth and reality. His representations of natural and supernatural phenomena suggest a primordial past from which humankind has emerged and an apocalyptic future towards which humans are destined. Gleeson’s paintings are a potent reminder that human kind is one small component within the grand scheme of the cosmos."

Note:

“[A positive feedback loop is a process whereby] a nudge to one factor leads to a change in another, which in turn causes the first factor to change more, shifting everything in the same direction. For example, some paleolithic records suggest that during warm periods there was a lagged but corresponding increase in greenhouse gas concentrations. Melting ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere flooded the ocean with fresh water, disrupting ocean circulation and shifting the energy balance between the hemispheres. The loss of ice sheets also means less sunlight was reflected back into space, so the land surface surrounding the oceans absorbed more of the incoming solar radiation. Permafrost areas that previously buried frozen forests under thick ice sheets began to thaw, releasing stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. As ocean temperatures increased, sea water began releasing stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. All these factors amplified the warming trend that led to even more carbon dioxide being released, a vicious cycle of sorts.” Gergis, Sunburnt Country…, MUP, 2018, p. 141
