MARY IVERSON LOVE
I'm still obsessed with vintage landscapes and new geometry, so was delighted to spy an artist who combines both. MARY IVERSON's work comprises smaller pieces that use photographs cut out of vintage travel magazines and larger oil paintings with reference to her own photography.
"The first thing you will notice when you see my work is a beautiful image of a pristine landscape. On further investigation, you will find that the landscape is covered with an intricate network of lines that obscures the pretty view. Next, you discover that there are hundreds of shipping containers and wrecked container ships caught in the snare of those lines, and you realize that you are witnessing the aftermath of an enormous catastrophe."
