About the Artist: Diane Burko
Diane Burko has placed herself at the intersection of science and art, imparting imaginative and emotional dimensions to the statistics on climate change. Since the 1970s Burko’s work has evolved from photographing and painting monumental landscapes to documenting glacial recession, using the power of art to capture its reality. Joining expeditions in Svalbard, Norway, Argentina, Greenland, and Antarctica, she has seen firsthand the rapid transformation of landscapes essential to life on earth. Her creative response, represented in Glacial Shifts, Changing Perspectives, compels us to take notice and take action.
