Earth & Sky
Andrews Gallery College of William & Mary, Williamsburg Virginia April 2010
Black Earth Blue Sky is a series of woodcuts that was an exhibition included in the International Mercury Expo: April 23 - 25 2010. The series grew out of my outrage at a local green washing campaign sponsored by Portland General Electric. PGE has a media campaign that extols their wind power and green energy while in realty, wind is only a small percentage of the electricity is generated and 40% is comes from a coal plant, Boardman. As I researched this individual power plant, I became aware of the national and international implications of coal power. We share a sky that does not recognize national borders and therefore we share both its beauty and its corruption.
