Bethel Lu was intrigued by all kinds of thoughts concerning the End of Days and, in response, she created this sunflower series. The sunflowers in her paintings is a reflection of human beings when faced with changes of the natural world, wars between countries, horrifying terrorism, suppression of thoughts, and financial and energy crises. The turmoil springing up in the world triggers a sense of crisis and an awareness of the End of Days among the human race.

The life of sunflowers is just like the life of human beings. It may seem to be fragile yet, when it blossoms, it is incredibly beautiful. We often feel impotent when looking at the world situation and its underlying threats. No political system is able to make the world a better place. With all the disastrous events happening in the world, we do feel that the End of Days is looming ahead.
