It’s Not Easy Being Green previous next
In this image I am struggling with an attempt to connect with the memory traces of shooting at the Sunset Midway and San Ardo Oil Fields in central California. The image is a phenomenological gesture of frustration relative to the oil fields which appear like distant medieval castles in a book illumination, in the left quadrant of the image. The inversions of the atmosphere bring the poison tang of airborne petroleum into the drawing space. The apparent powerlessness of the individual to effect change except on the smallest of scales...the irony of developing this work with electronic media and then sandwiching the image in acrylic sheeting and aluminum-materials both with a huge carbon footprint--what is to be done?
