Geometry & Landscape Photography Meet Acrylics & Ink With Seattle Artist Mary Iverson

Geometry & Landscape Photography Meet Acrylics & Ink With Seattle Artist Mary Iverson

In Mary Iverson's new collection of paintings, the artist uses a combination of acrylic paints, inks, and photographs of everyday landscapes to create these creative works of art. The overlay of ink and paint on the photos is meant to explore how humans interact with their surroundings. The effect of the paintings is quite juxtaposed, given that the solid, angular lines of the geometric angles and line work are placed over seemingly tranquil landscapes.

As the Seattle-based artist described to Amadeus Magazine, "In following my interests and working to resolve an artistic dichotomy within myself, between my love and nature and my fascination with the shipping industry, I came upon a visual solution that metaphorically echoes what we are facing in the world today.”

The following works are on display as of today, November 11th, at the Andenken Gallery in Amsterdam and are included in an exhibit called Correspondence, alongside fellow artist Scott Albrecht. Enjoy.
