GLOBAL LANDSCAPES: Oil Series, is a series of mixed media paintings which attempt to visualize how oil consumes our lives politically, economically and environmentally. By balancing the vibrant colours of the landscapes against the darker areas of oil paint which seeps, pools, and spots areas of the canvas, I visually reveal the ongoing struggle to conserve oil and simultaneously protect the landscapes it lies beneath in a culture so dependent on its existence. Depending on the audience's perspective or moment in time, the paintings may appear dark due to oil's depleting and contaminating state, or hopeful, reflective of oil's life giving and industrious qualities.
