Diane Burko, ‘Endangered: from Glaciers to Reefs’
For the past decade, Diane Burko’s striking studies of natural landscapes have been preoccupied with the effects of climate change on the earth’s surface. Rendering satellite and census photography in paint, she has traced the retreat of arctic ice and glaciers over time, in a form that is part documentary and part abstraction. A new series of large-scale paintings explores the decay of coral reefs from ocean acidification and rising temperatures. Her recent work, made in consultation with glaciologists and marine biologists, is exhibited at the National Academy of Arts and Sciences in Washington DC, in Endangered: From Glaciers to Reefs.
