What has the media been saying?


Ivana Damien George’s “Glacial Waters” makes for a sly pendant to the Washburn show. It consists of four color photographs, 14 inches by 21 inches. Each consists of a clear globe holding water, water that came from a glacier in the Peruvian Andes. In the background, one can see the glacier. It’s at once a visual/hydrological pun and a comment on climate change. The glaciers are shrinking, which makes it easier for George to fill her bowls — until, of course, the glaciers have shrunken so much that they’re gone and so’s the water.

The Artists Corner at Panopticon displays a perfect contemporary response to Washburn. The photographs by Ivana Damien George engage the topics of environment, global warming, and water resources.

Ivana Damien George attempts to respond to and go beyond the aesthetic product of art. She compels the viewer to intimately consider the meaning of her work with a symbolic reference to our present, one day becoming our history.

“I was deeply struck by the energy welling up from every corner of New England in photography,’’ writes Prodger, who’s curator of photography at the Peabody Essex Museum, in a juror’s statement. One form that energy takes is sheer diversity. The very nearly hilarious starkness of Daniel Coury’s “Untitled,’’ which places four pieces of hard candy cut in half shown against a bare background, is as different from the glorious visual cacophony of Pelle Cass’s “Cypress Field’’ as the uses of water are in Ivana George’s “Boston 2200 A.D.’’ and Katherine McVety’s “Canoe at Great Meadows.’’ George manipulates her image to show a global-warming cityscape, in which Boston Harbor has inundated much of the skyline.
