Author: Greenpeace has set three well-known American landscapes on fire, revealing how they might be ravaged by environmental pollution.
Greenpeace's latest campaign sees three iconic American landscape paintings destroyed in an attempt to draw attention to Shell's first attempt to drill for oil in the Arctic.
The paintings are, of course, prints – but seeing Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World, David Hockey's Pearblossom Highway and William Bradford's An Arctic Summer: Boring Through the Pack in Melville Bay set on fire still packs an emotional punch. What's revealed are horrific versions of the paintings with oil spills taken from photos of environmental disasters, which have been created by artists KennardPhillipps – the duo behind Photo Op (aka Tony Blair's Iraq Selfie).
