PORTFOLIOS > Altered Environment

La Plata County, Colorado is resting on top of a giant natural gas field. A well was drilled in the pasture aross from our home. During drilling the well was "flared" for weeks. The 30 foot flame lit the night and haunted our dreams.

The raised "measure" through the center of the canvas denotes the idea of cultural knowledge: like mapping. These measures are used in a series of my paintings.
