ARTIST’S STATEMENT

In 1989 my friend David Mollett asked me if I might be interested in going on a painting adventure into the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the early summer of 1990. The plan was to visit some of the areas within the refuge that are potential sites for oil exploration and extraction on the coastal plain near Camden Bay.

Strangely, my most successful pieces from that trip were those that I did while working in and around an abandoned Defense Early Warning radar site within the refuge on the coast near Camden Bay. The military left behind buildings, junk, vehicles, aircraft and thousands of empty fuel barrels.

As a witness to the scars left on this wilderness area by what could have been a relatively minor intrusion, I think that we should use great caution when we look to this place as a site for resource development.
