The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of Gondwana: Images of an Ancient Land, an exhibition of the recent photographic work of Diane Tuft. The exhibition will open on Wednesday, June 4 at Marlborough Gallery on 57th Street with an opening reception from 6–8 P.M.
In 2012, a grant from the National Science Foundation brought photographer Diane Tuft to Antarctica for six weeks. The resulting series of photographs captures the dramatic natural landscape of this remote and ancient continent. Details of ice and rock are distilled into stunning forms for the viewer to consider anew. The photographs are both visual and scientific studies, conveying the subtle and violent atmospheric changes registered on the Antarctic landscape over millions of years. Tuft's rich color photographs capture the high levels of ultraviolet light in Antarctica, thereby exposing the visual effects of years of climate change.
Tuft's book, Gondwana: Images of an Ancient Land, has been released by Assouline and will be available for purchase at Marlborough Gallery throughout the exhibition.
