I’ve enjoyed bringing some of the spray paint textures from my fine art into my screen prints. I like the subtle color shifts and ethereal gradients that can be achieved with spray paint. This “The Angles of Sedation and Destruction” print features bold geometric minimalism fused with spray gradients and a hypnotic poppy pattern. The poppy pattern and flame, symbols of sedation and destruction, are woven into a seemingly balanced geometry, but all is not perfectly harmonious. Climate change and environmental degradation are subtle and gradual, with only periodic extreme weather events to remind us dramatically of the cumulative impact. Let this print be a gentle reminder as well. A portion of proceeds from this print will go to Greenpeace USA to support their efforts to fight climate change. This print, like all of my prints, is printed on sustainable paper, recycled paper in this case. - Shepard
