Emergency Exhibit by Iuna Tinta
LAUNCHING SEPTEMBER 3rd, 2015
As riders of snow, water and dirt, our connection to the earth is strong. We who live outside understand clearly that this planet is in a state of emergency. For Asymbol artist Iuna Tinta, it’s the radical changes she's witnessed in her beloved Swiss mountains that give cause for alarm. From bi-polar winters to rapidly-melting glaciers in bare mountains that once held summer snow, Iuna’s inspiration is drawn from landscapes that are actively transforming around her.
By shining a light on the beauty of what we have and heartbreak of what we're losing, Iuna Tinta’s art heralds a thundering call-to-action. No longer is it okay to sit idle while the world around us sounds its alarm bells. This is an emergency.
A portion of sales from this show will be donated to POW: Protect Our Winters.
