Message from the Deep; 

Portraiture of the Anthropocene

Tess Felix

January 8–February 6, 2016
Reception: January 8 • 5–8pm

Message from the Deep; Portraiture of the Anthropocene 
(the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment) 

Using the classical form of portraiture, Tess Felix’s is building a body of work created from ocean plastic pollution. The portraits call attention to the enormous amounts of waste in our oceans, much of it invisible to us. Out of sight and out of mind, an ecological disaster is building and adversely affecting one of the oldest food sources of the human race and it’s many inhabitants. 

Many of us engage in making responsible environmental choices for our personal garbage and carefully cull through it for recyclable waste. In truth, a very small percentage of all waste designated for recycling actually is. Some studies put this figure as low as 5%. 

We have to ask, where does our recycled waste really go? And what about the remainder that is sent to land fill? Sadly, much this, regardless of our intention, ends in our oceans. Even with the great successes of local recycling programs, it is clear that our responsibility begins at the point of sale, before we have used an item or consumed its contents.

Bio: Tess Felix lives in the Marin coastal community of Stinson Beach with her husband, Sean Greene. They have two adult children. She has lived in Marin County for most of her life, cherishing the easy access it provides to the beautiful outdoors. When not working you can find her enjoying hiking trails on Mount Tamalpais, surfing and biking along the coast with family and friends. You may also find her walking the shore, collecting plastics from the sand for composing her artworks.
