Artist Spotlight: Shelley Heffler (paintings)

In the artist’s own words: “The Anthropocene describes the geologic epoch where humans have impacted and altered the Earth’s systems. This body of work is inspired by how we use and interpret our planet, chronicling the visible scars and manipulations of the earth as seen from above. Examining the human role in shaping our current geological era, the work questions the impulse to alter the Earth’s story through the rearrangement of past accumulations of our actions.”
