PUSHING PAINT OVER SHAKY GROUND

History says. Don’t hope

On this side of the grave.

But then, once in a lifetime

The longed-for tidal wave of justice

Can rise up,

And hope and history rhyme. 

So hope for a great sea-change

On the far side of revenge.

Believe that a further shore

Is reachable from here.

Believe in miracles

And cures and healing wells.

    — Seamus Heaney, from The Cure at Troy

 

I have been painting imaginary landscapes inspired by newspaper photos of environments threatened by climate change. The pacific ocean is a grounding element in many of these paintings both in composition and visual emotional content. the idea of showing these works just blocks from the ocean is tremendously exciting for me.
