Artist Statement Submitted 2018
For the past 10 years I have been exploring and drawing the natural forces that make the landscape of Bent Mountain the rural area where I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. But after the announcement that this beautiful community that I have loved all my life will be invaded, bulldozed and poisoned by the Mountain Valley Pipeline, a Natural Gas Pipeline that will be used to send Fracked Gas to the coast and sold over seas, I have been focusing on resisting and fighting it any way I can. Now My work reflects this. Since then I have been drawing documented Natural Gas Pipeline explosions and the logos of the corporations responsible for them as well as forest fires and other forces of destruction that seem so common now.
