The print "The Great Urban Sprawl" portrays the global issue of 'black-topping" the environment as expressed through a local environment, the Sonoran Desert. I lived in Tucson, Arizona between 1999 and 2002, where I witnessed ‘urban sprawl’ at its best as the desert was flattened and paved inch by inch day by day. Artist and poet BRASH wrote me a poem:
Nov 20, 2004 Brash. All Rights reserved
This is death's most valued treasure,
The iron rod by which he takes measure.
Of each of his victim's living,
The feet and inches more or less forgiving.
