Through the sparse composition and selection of media I have tried to convey the desolation of our environment. All is weathered, fluxed, harsh, and unproductive. It is my intention to convey a sense of loss, of degradation – our precious environment has been bleached of all its fecundity. The signs went unheeded – what a shocking legacy we have gifted to future generations.
