Sublime Climate – Addressing Global Warming
Alarm Projecting Global Change

Thompson Gallery, The Cambridge School, Weston, MA

Following closely on the heels of the release of a report from the National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) indicating that 2006 was the warmest year on record for the United States, comes “Sublime Climate—Addressing Global Warming,” an eclectic art exhibition of talented artists from around the world who use a variety of media to delve into the complexities and critical aspects of global warming. The three part series is showing at The Thompson Gallery at The Cambridge School of Weston (CSW) through June 9, 2008. Curated by Todd Bartel.

Geological movement throughout the earth’s history and its resulting land and sea formations is of great interest to me. Ancient rock formations present landscapes that reveal themselves to be sculpted by time, the Storrs of Scotland for example. All landscapes are evolving, shaped by wind, water, fire, ice, and shifting landmass. The Earth is dynamic. It is in constant flux adding and subtracting lands, seas, and species. Since humankind has inhabited the earth the balance of natural time shifts have begun to unravel. We are speeding up the climate change that is part of the natural cycle of the earth putting all living things in peril. I acknowledge the beauty and inspiration of nature through my work with the goal of revealing the urgency of our responsibility for stewardship to keep it accessible, healthy and free to move at its own pace towards the next evolution of land and life forms. We do not want to have the natural landscape become only available to us "underglass". Joy Wulke 2007
