Lake Powell U.S. Drought 18.03 Ecowatch

Oil on birch wood panel

30 x 40 x 3cm

2022

Lake Powell U.S. Drought 18.03 Ecowatch was painted from a news report on the severe drought at Lake Powell, which resulted in this incredible image of the rings left where the water has dropped. It was painted in four colours.

The painting is in oil on a braced birch wood panel with clean wooden edges. It doesn’t need framing but can be should you prefer.

It was painted as part of a project I undertook in 2022 to paint a year of reportage images on the effects of climate change. I painted 46 works in 12 months. You can read more about the project in my News section. From October 2023 – April 2024 the entire project titled You And I Are Earth was exhibited at Firstsite Museum and Gallery in Colchester, Essex.

My aim in painting the project was to put a pause on these dramatic images which are fed to us through our tvs and phones and can pass us by in under a second. I wanted to see what an entire year of my edit of these images would look like. Spending time with each had a profound effect on me.
