Paper Plant Nocturne July 29, 2011

This painting was produced in 1997, in the first year working producing my Master's Thesis at Cal State University Northridge. I was beginning my search for urban/industrial grit, at night, painted on location.

It was outside the barbed wire fence surrounding the Proctor and Gamble Paper Products Plant in Oxnard California.
I remember the erie sounds of the fork lifts moving around inside the plant, and I thought of the movie, Soylent Green, imagining they were making little green biscuits out of dead people.
