Weinstein Gallery is pleased to present WATER, an exhibition of large format photographs by internationally recognized Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky.
Opening reception with the artist
Friday, May 8, 6:00pm-8:00pm
This exhibition explores humanity's increasingly stressed relationship with the world's most vital natural resource in a series of large format photographs made by acclaimed Canadian artist, Edward Burtynsky.
Over the past five years, Burtynsky has traveled across the globe, weaving together an ambitious representation of water's increasingly fragmented life cycle. These colorful aerial images, many bordering on the edge of complete abstraction, hover between the worlds of painting and photography. They form a compelling global portrait of water that functions as an open-ended question about humanity's past, present, and future relationship with the natural world.
Edward Burtynsky's photographic depictions of industrialized landscapes are included in the collections of over fifty museums around the world, including: the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Tate Modern, London, National Gallery of Art and Library of Congress, Washington D.C., the Reina Sofia, Madrid, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
