Earth First! Journal Auction

As you may or may not know, I am a strong supporter of direct action in defense of animals and the Earth.  That being said, I am proud to be a part of the first annual Earth First! Journal Art Auction.  Two of my screenprints, "Seven Truths" and "The Mother", will be available to bid on from Monday, November 25th to Friday, December 6th.  For a preview of all of the work, visit here.

 

 

"Seven Truths"

Screenprint on Black Cotton Rag Paper with light grey ink containing the ashes of a burnt church

Signed and numbered edition of 20

11x14"

 

Because of the prevalence of the number seven relating to nature (days of the week, continents, notes in the musical scale, colors of the rainbow, etc.) many regard the number as perfect. In my work and studies, I have come to associate the number, as a visual metaphor, with the perfection of nature. "Seven Truths" exhibits the inferiority of our species under the larger happenings of the natural world.

"The Mother"

Screenprint on Black Cotton Rag Paper with Light Grey Ink

Signed and numbered edition of 14

16" x 20"

 

I always stress the significance of direct action. "The Mother" was inspired by stories of hunt saboteurs that are directly getting between hunters and the animals the hunters are attempting to murder. The mother whale being able to swim with her calf is a happy ending to what could have been a tragedy.
