Work goes on

Work goes on December 3, 2014

This is the last in a series of ten posts featuring artwork from the Christians in the Visual Arts exhibit, “Work: Curse or Calling?” Many thanks to Margot Rogers and CIVA for allowing us to feature these beautiful, intriguing, and challenging pieces here at MISSION:WORK.  Please check out CIVA’s website for more information on scheduling the exhibit for your own church, school, or workplace, and to see the other images from the exhibit (there are 28 in all.)  Today’s featured work is:

Abitibi on Rainy River II
Sheryl McRoberts (Plymouth, MN)
Pen and ink
2008
15” x 30”

Abitibi on Rainy River II explores the characteristics of the well established, iconic paper mill as an image of economic development (the ups and downs of its industry) as it relates to the natural characteristics of the surrounding landscape. The cascade of buildings and the juxtapositions of the pipes and shafts unify the composition.
