Fair’s photographic project INDUSTRIAL SCARS depicts the environmental consequences of human exploitation of the Earth. What at first glance appear to be aesthetically appealing and colourful abstract paintings are actually aerial photographs of landscapes scared by factory farming, steel, coal or aluminium production, and hydro fracking. >> >>
“What interests me about this series is its essential irony and hope. The thinking person participating in the modern world understands that all of us are living unsustainably, the impending consequences on our economy are real and significant. But in fact, with a little effort and luck, these limitations could be overcome, ensuring a secure future. And so we must hope, as we are all invested.” (J Henry Fair) >>
