Artist Statement from Chuck Sperry:
My print for PangeaSeed, “Siren”, is meant as warning. My imagination has always been drawn to this mythical being - dangerous and enchanting - whose form is an enthralling warning. The Siren dances and sings like the sea itself, seducing us with her sound, movement and beauty.
Long ago, on November 5, 1965, prominent climate scientists Roger Revelle, Wallace Broecker, Charles Keeling, Harmon Craig, and J Smagorisnky met with US President Lyndon Johnson and warned him of their findings on Climate Change. By 1974, Wallace Broekner had modeled his prediction for the affects of accumulated carbon dioxide on the global surface temperature of the Earth. His predictions remain accurate to this day.
As of 2015 we have experienced a 1 degree centigrade rise in temperature worldwide, as Broekner predicted.
In the last few seasons we have witnessed the California Drought, a record fire season, and the Pacific Blob (a 2-7 degree rise in Pacific Coastal water temperatures).
I am alarmed by the state of our planet’s environment. I grew up with the warnings. The predicted changes are here now.
It’s clearly time to act. Please be mindful and give your care to the environment. It’s time to do what you can to become a good steward of the environment. I am always happy to contribute my time and energy to PangeaSeed! Their efforts in helping to save the seas deserve our support and good energies!
