Climate Legal Evidence
2021. Canvases printed in B/W and painted in acrylic.

This series of works consists of four graphs taken from internally commissioned studies by Shell and Exxon in the early 1980s that had assessed the effects of their greenhouse gas emissions. These studies had already precisely established that the emissions would have produced a rise in temperatures, acidification of the oceans, and many other negative effects on the climate. These documents remained undisclosed for decades and are now used as evidence in lawsuits against Shell and Exxon. Cirio highlights the graphs taken from these historical documents by printing them on large canvases and painting them in bright colors. Read more about these graph in this article.

1982 Exxon increase temperature 21st Century.
