Artwork > Plants of Grassy Mountain (Works on Paper)

Plants of Grassy Mountain, 2020. 38 drawings: heated milk on paper, 38 drawings: charcoal and milk on paper, 17.78 x 25.4 cm, original drawings.

This series of drawings depicts plants that have historically grown on or may still grow on Grassy Mountain in what is now known as the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. The drawings were created using milk on paper. Initially invisible, the heat from a candle or rubbing charcoal on the drawings reveals the image of each plant. Watch a video of the process here. The Grassy Mountain Coal Project is a proposed open-pit metallurgical coal mine. If approved, it will operate for 22 years endangering and destroying habitat, wildlife, waterways, soil, trees, and plants. Learn more about this work at http://dowsinganddigging.com.
