100% Natural #27-EnvironGeoPolitical Landscape #1

Craig Cheply's avatar Craig Cheply

The ongoing “100% Natural” Series since 2006 is: Contemporary visual statements of the observed socio/polit/enviro/econo/relig/geo/natural landscapes playing out on the domestic and world stages daily as subject matter. My artworks are rendered with the triple entendre entity Natural History (Certified) being the classification, subject matter and medium. I’m using our historic past literally, allegorically, metaphorically, representatively, recycled, repurposed, reused, time based, etc. as the medium upon divergent substrates visually commenting upon man's past, current history in this 21st Century arena and future state of affairs-the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Subjects and issues while sometimes unsavory that are never fully addressed can never be fully resolved. Natural History tells the story of our living earth. It comprises the systematic observation, classification, interpretation, and description of the biosphere and its inhabitants.
