Oil Spill by Jane Skafte

Colored pencil
22″ x 28″

I create imaginary landscapes by looking at schematics, aerial views, weather maps and scientific illustration, all of which rely on symbolism more than observation, and I manipulate them to make intentional distortions in proportion…My compositions invite the viewer to observe earth changes with a detached view of the ongoing climate catastrophe, and also as metaphor (“sea change”). The landscape is deconstructed insofar as meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.” —Jane Skafte
