Jenine Marsh at Lulu


Radioactive green lakes were once the nuclear age's symbol of ecological apocalypse, doom and gloom type scenario, a hyperbolic green and dead that today's lakes and rivers actually do turn fed by the nitrogen-rich run-off of hyper-agriculture's fertilizers and poisonous suburban lawns that dogs must stay off for 24 hours blooming the pristine green lawns of everyone's micro-aristocracy, a new form of ecological apocalypse in which the difference in green between sci-fi premonition's barren radioactive is indistinguishable from the lake's hypoxic spring bearing too much life, an indistinguishability that has something to with Marsh's exhibition here.
