Cindy Lisica Gallery presents Diane Burko: "Endangered" opening reception
Cindy Lisica Gallery presents a solo exhibition of Diane Burko’s newest work. Her latest ongoing series has taken her from glaciers to coral reefs, as she draws critical attention to inspiring monumental geological phenomena and environmental concerns through the stunning visual interpretations in her artwork. Her paintings, photography and mixed media reflect an incredibly impressive career and expeditions around the world, using new materials and technology.
The "Endangered" exhibition includes lenticular wall pieces that combine her painted images with photography and LED light to create an interactive presentation. Her skilled painting process moves from masterful brushwork to manipulating the viscosity of her paints, and she uses an air compressor to direct the composition and surface textures of the spectacular canvases. Her photography is equally as compelling with its dazzling compositions and rare glimpses of a changing planet. With her profound relationship with science, nature and aesthetics, Burko’s artwork is fascinating and exceptionally moving.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until June 8. There will also be an artist's talk on May 4.
