Parenthesis (Oil)

Graphite on Paper
32 x 88″ framed and hung together as a diptych

Parenthesis (Oil) is the first of the Surface Tension series. Eyes stare at you for a reason. Our consumption choices affect our fragile ecosystem. How we light and heat/cool our homes and get from one place to another also affects our environment. What we choose to eat, it’s packaging, and how we throw it out are important decisions.

Imagine sailing on a broad reach under full sail through an oil sheen. Imagine the Anhinga drying her wings full of fuel. Imagine the beautiful nature around you dulled by an unnatural amount of heat, wind, and water. Nature will regain balance. Our decisions matter.
