I My show, TERRAIN, in 2013 included pieces from series in which I created images about global warming, drying rivers and rising seas. The series, NORTHERN WATERS, was begun a day before hurricane Sandy hit New York. I felt that I was making visual effects of climate change and became energized. A few months ago, I was asked by Gary Duehr to show with four other artists in INVENTING 3-D LANDSCAPES, which is now at the Brickbottom Gallery in Somerville. brickbottomartists.com/gallery_current
In addition to showing Northern Waters 1,4, & 8 I have an installation, Jokulhlaup: Glacier Leap, which creates the impression that elements are falling apart and melting. The Icelandic term used by geologists to describe a sudden collapse of a glacier with a rush of flooding.
