We are all addicts of Fossil Fuels.
I don't think I ever posted the final series of this project before, these were the three prints I chose to represent the quote by Kurt Vonnegut - "Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey.
Done in one of my favourite 'monoprint on newsprint' techniques which I seem to use a lot, I actually felt the technique really suited the quote. I feel the roughness compliments it well, and each print has been chosen to represent one of three different factors which I felt were important - the age and time it takes to produce fossil fuels, how important they are to us, and our 'addiction' to them.
