My painting “Gorge” was inspired by Thomas Moran’s 19thC work “The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone”(view in gallery).

I envisioned this place as carpeted with factories and refineries. While Moran sought to convey the sublime beauty of nature, my work attempts to portray a scenario where corporate interests have usurped control, in their quest to extract every natural resource for financial gain. Fortunately, we still have protected places in this world, but our collective actions are having a global impact, so nowhere is entirely safe from harm.
