Ghost Ship

Screen print on paper, edition of 13

 

After my travels in 2008 and 2009 to shores of the Antarctic Peninsula, I focused on two specific issues in my work: the costs and benefits of ecotourism and the effects of climate change on the polar landscape. As educational as ecotourism can be, it is also playing a role in accelerating climate change and the deterioration of the some of the most fragile environments on earth. As I depend on periodic long-distance travel and ecotourism to make my work, I am very conscious of the environmental costs associated with it and this awareness has taken root in my art, often through the integration of text and image.
