Animal Insurrection by Michelle Waters
Michelle Waters paintings’ use sardonic humor to portray what might occur if animals were able to reclaim their despoiled habitat from industrial civilization. Scenes depicted include Arctic wildlife laying waste to a Hummer dealership, a mountain lion with an acetylene torch decommissioning a bulldozer and animals tearing down billboards for housing developments.

Michelle will also be participating in Yelling at Your Environment at Harrington Arts at 870 Market St., #1049, San Francisco, March 1st through mid April.

Roundels by Gianfranco Paolozzi
I was looking in the recycle container full of paper from flexo presses.
That’s when I felt the passion again: round surfaces screaming to be used.
I looked at them changing on the floor of my studio.
I had to use my marks, my moments on the surfaces as a sign of me being there.
That’s when the roundels were born.
