I have two paintings currently on display at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, California.
Reimagining Progress: Production, Consumption, & Alternative Economies
Statement for the show: We face an urgent problem: our current consumption patterns outstrip our planet’s available resources, and yet our society continues to produce massive amounts of cheap, disposable goods. With its complex history as a center of international commerce, radical politics, technological innovation, and cultural experimentation, the Bay Area is uniquely positioned to help solve this problem. Reimagining Progress features local artists powerfully critiquing our unsustainable status quo, exploring our society’s relationship to production, consumption, and waste while proposing alternatives that balance valuing people and planet with financial profit.
It is a wonderful opportunity for me to participate in an show so aligned with the subject matter of my artwork.
The exhibit will remain on display through September 4th. More information can be found here.
