BP "oil" paintings created from tar and oil on the Gulf Coast during the 2010 BP oil spill.
These works were created primarily from tar and oil recovered from my home on the Gulf Coast during the BP oil spill of 2010. The "oil" portraits depict the the artist's home- both the landscape and individuals affected by the spill, as well as the former CEO of BP, Tony Hayward. Watch the artists' TEDx talk on the subject, "From Harm to Harmony" here. (coming soon)
all works are drawn exclusively from life in pencil, charcoal, pencil color and chalk.
