Geology Art for Sale by Joeallen Gibson
“Geoism” is a term that I use to describe the style of my work. My paintings have a wide range of textures created by sculpting earthen materials and using native dyes whenever possible. I also use a wide range of other media to express the textures needed to capture geologic concepts and the beauty of nature.

“Frac Job” is 20"X30" and is my interpretation of how oil and gas formations look after they have been stimulated by a process known as fracturing. When a rock formation is encountered that contains oil and gas sometimes a process known as fracturing is preformed to enhance the production ability of the formation to release the oil and gas. The slang term for this stimulation is called a "Frac Job" where the formation is fractured under tremendous pressure using a variety of fluids engineered for this purpose. We will never see exactly what the results of fracturing a formation looks like, but I like to guess. This has become a hot topic with all the "Frac Jobs" being performed in the horizontally drilled shale wells in the Northeastern US shale gas wells , with the associated concern of the fracturing impact on the up-hole water supply.
