Fault Line

Fault Line

41" x 55" ©2010

I grew up on top of the Turner Valley Oilfield. “Fault Line” is a result of childhood wonder, fuelled by seismic tests, drilling, thumping, pumping and processing with steam and fire. Secrets deep in the sediments are brought to the surface, layers of mud, clay and rock, sheltering precious pockets of natural gas and oil. Whose fault? What fault?
