Artist Gregory Euclide has devised an ingenious way to use naturescapes as an environmentally conscious art statement. For these mixed media creations, he uses blue resin to represent water in natural settings. Around the resin Gregory Euclide creates forests, valleys and meadows. 

Gregory Euclide also incorporates paint cans into his art, creating a complex statement about pollutions role in nature and our view towards it.

Implications - The video is completely silent, which makes the environmental statement even stronger. Gregory Euclide's show description states that "the use of materials that are non-biodegradable, such as foam that has been weathered by nature, further emphasizes the invasiveness of the commercial world in which we live." It is important for people to understand the effects they have towards nature so that the world can become a greener place.
