Believing that there is no distinction between environmental and humanitarian concerns, inspired by the view from the top of Telescope Peak looking out over a landscape altered by California’s ongoing drought, the diptych PARCH is an attempt to articulate to the viewer the intensity and terror of that which is already in motion: cataclysmic change that has etched itself visibly into the land, seas, and skies with an alarming rapidity. Rather than in some unforeseeable future, we are already witnesses to what may be the irreversible summation of human history.
