Rendered in tar (a byproduct of the petroleum industry) and framed in old-growth Douglas Fir or cedar (an atmospheric purifying carbon sink), these works by Rossano discuss the effects of human culture and global climate change on species already extinct or in a final bid for relevance. Using oil as both metaphor and medium, these tar depictions of endangered species bleed through water-based white paint, leaving ghostly images that cannot be completely covered or hidden.
