Across a BP gas station
Today I found some slippery tar balls with sand and created my first work on canvas in the US. It is a dark brown painting from the material caused by British Petrol and the Deepwater Horizon. I filled many Ziploc bags with this stuff.
The white sand and the gulfwater at Long Beach, Mississippi with all its birds and fishes and men expect a storm. In the evening hours I saw men fishing before these things will reach the beach in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Maybe it is the last possibility to fish clean bass for a while - maybe not. I hope the best for them.
If you shop in Beloxi at the BP Mac store, you will find a THANK YOU flyer, which expresses the hopeful promise: BP WILL MAKE THIS RIGHT.
I pressed crude oil on these postcards - but I hope for all the workers and local dealers that they will survive the tragedy here in Mississippi.
It is time to takeover BP
1 I create crude oil canvas
2 Sell these canvas
3 Buy new stock, to takeover BP with the oil spill.
Best wishes from Ruppe Koselleck
