Artist Statement: "These rigid garments, Man and Gaia, represent the main actors in the global warming drama. Man, dressed in his pin striped overalls is neither good nor evil but he must do more than say his lines to be a hero. Gaia, who created order out of chaos, is waiting to respond. Let’s hope Man can influence the last act. If Gaia completes the story Man might not like the ending."  ~Marilyn Annin (featured in Paradise Lost: Climate Change in the North Woods)
