Aviva Rahmani's art work has reflected environmental and social concerns throughout her forty-year career. Her projects range from complete landscape restorations to museum venues that reference painting, sound and photography. Her blog addresses ecological restoration and our relationship to global warming.
In her most recent works, Colburn references systems that we utilize in everyday life, but are largely removed from our consciousness. Sprawling organisms such as urban sewer and water systems and the global network of pipes and refineries that develop and transport oil have been fodder for an investigation of the complex yet base, and at times grotesque, constructs that support modern society.
Paint for the Planet
Paint for the Planet is a global children’s art exhibit and auction. This year it was in New York City on October 23rd and 25th. The auction raises money for UNICEF’s emergency relief for children affected by climate-related disasters.
