About this Art

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

This painting features Tipsoo Lake, one of my favorite spots in Mount Rainier National Park. This particular view of the lake is iconic, and it has inspired many a postcard and wall calendar. When I spend time in places like this, I ask myself what would happen if this pristine landscape were invaded by shipping containers. Would anyone even notice? Would they stop to think about what we are doing to the planet, how we are changing the climate with our patterns of consumption? I choose to paint vistas like this not only for their beauty, but because we are blind to so many other parts of the world. If an industrial accident happens in some country we can’t find on the map, we can put it out of our mind. But when tragedy invades our precious postcard views, there is a better chance we will be consciousness of it.

My paintings express these ideas, but they are also beautiful in their own right, aside from the concepts behind them. I love the tangle of perspective lines that are scratched into the paint, the rhythm of the flat containers against the complex landscape, and the contrast of the saturated colors next to the earth tones. I also enjoy my research trips to these places, when I spend time hiking, sketching, and taking photographs. All of these aspects of the work keep me engaged in the process and loving what I do." Mary Iverson


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Mary Iverson’s paintings portray the clash between globalization and the environment, offering visions of container ships as they collide with national parks in surreal, post apocalyptic scenarios. Her interest in the shipping industry began with observations at the Port of Seattle. Initially, she was drawn to the beauty of the port, but as she began learning more about the growth of the industry, with its enormous trade volumes and huge mega-ships, she wondered about ultimate destination for all of this growth. When this thought process clashed with her identity as an environmentalist, it generated her current body of work.
