The Nuclear Family

40 x 30 gallery canvas. Acrylics, pumice, gel.
The Road to Extinction
The proponents of the Polymet Mining Project and the Enbridge Pipeline claim that water quality will not be impacted by oil leaks into the ground waters, lakes, and rivers. It is already a fact the wild rice beds will be destroyed in the St. Louis River tributaries near Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters canoe Area. And as always, there is a loss of habitat and life for the fish, amphibians, and birds. 22 X 22 framed under plexiglass; acrylic on newspaper.
Who Can You Trust?
If you can't trust a multibillion dollar corporation to do the right thing, who can you trust? The alleged free market is freest to those who have the most money, and is not free at all to those with little or no money. Walmart, or British Petroleum, has virtually all the "freedom" to compete against local, privately owned businesses or environmental interests. With the banner of "prosperity" and "economic growth" corporations degrade farms, forests, ecosystems, rural towns, and watersheds. 22 X 22 framed under plexiglass; acrylic on newspaper.
