Drawings, 2007-8

The recent drawings imagine a future world in which the end game of resource consumption at present rates has resulted in the refugee camp atop the water tower, the North Sea oil rig sharing the ocean’s horizon with wildfires and garbage scows, where the development plans for suburban McMansions share space with favelas and slums, where a tent encampment settles at the foot of the melting glacier, where power plants overflow their boundaries and infiltrate urban neighborhoods. Using the limited palette of grisaille or sepia, the worlds in these drawings are drained of color, and yet filled with flux and fluids to indicate the instability of the worlds they depict.
