Literature & references:

Lindsay, R. ‘Peter Booth: One Hundred Years of Solitude — The New Ice Age’ in Peter Booth: Recent Paintings, exhibition catalogue, Deutscher Brunswick Street, Melbourne, 1990;
Lindsay, R., ‘Hard Rain: The Iconography of Peter Booth’, in Peter Booth: Human / Nature, National Gallery of Victoria, retrospective exhibition catalogue, Melbourne, 2003, p 23:
“In sombre works like Painting (Dark Seascape), 1989, the slow viscous waves of sludge, like coagulating heartbeats of an environment overladen with pollution, congeal on the sulphurous shore. In Greek mythology, the Golden Age is followed by the Silver Age and the Bronze Age, while in his great didactic poem Theogony (8th Century BC), Hesiod states that the Bronze Age is followed by a fourth age — the Iron Age: an age of conflict, misery and crime, ‘when men respect neither their vows, nor justice nor virtue. In our hubris have we constructed technological towers of Babel to reach Heavens — we speak in different tongues, watch the performers and hear not cries of others’ pain.’” Lindsay, op cit ‘Hard Rain.’
