Roger Peet is an artist and printmaker living in Portland, Oregon. His work in printmaking, illustration and murals focuses on the contemporary crises of biodiversity and capitalism and what can and can't be done about them. He is a founding member of the Justseeds artists' cooperative and on the board of the Flight 64 community print studio. He directs the Endangered Species Mural Project for the Center for Biological Diversity.
"I made this while at a residency in Ucross, Wyoming, in the middle of an ancient sea-bed," says Peet. "I was thinking about the doom of capitalism, of what comes after all our bad ideas, when the waters we've summoned submerge what we've made. A better time, to be sure."
