My two Global Warming Triptychs, set in San Francisco and in Oakland, will be on exhibition at the San Francisco Federal Building, 90 7th St (at Mission) from March 18 to June 1. The exhibition will occupy the ground level of the lobby. To purchase prints of the paintings shown in this blog go to "Featured Works" in the Shop.
This is an appropriate location to showcase the Series for two reasons.
2. The idea for this series occurred to me while I was painting this building from the corner of Mission and 7th St. That painting "Across a Hundred Years" is included in the exhibition.
The Global Warming Series is an invitation to you to actively imagine our future if global warming remains unchecked. These paintings are not predictions. They are science fiction. There are too many variables for us to predict the future of our planet with any precision. Only by exercising our imagination can we begin to grasp the enormity of the effect our species is having on this planet, and, perhaps, take measures to lessen our impact.
Here are the central panels of the two Triptychs:
For San Francisco
Also on exhibition will my recent painting of the Chronicle, and a ten foot wide painting of the Bay Bridge both created on location in San Francisco:
