Flush BP

PIPELINES & BORDERLINES: People Can't Drink OIL! Print Portfolio

Janet Schill. Flush BP 
"Flush BP" Screen Print by Janet Schill

Artist's Statement: 
A Toilet – is this what it comes to. We are given an opportunity to take care our planet. Watching those who turn our environment into a waste dump is sad and frustrating. If we don’t say something it will be too late for all of us. Bev Keys in her quest to creatively expose some of these problems has led me to the screen print called “Flush BP”. No more should be said. A large toilet is what they think our lake should become. Doesn’t matter, we drink, swim, and fish out of this lake. It’s a waste dump to the refinery.
