About the Cold Regions Warming Exhibition
Cold Regions Warming presents an art-science perspective on the climate change threats to the vast cold regions shared by Russia and Canada. The burning forests, thawing permafrost, melting glaciers and declining snow and ice cover are damaging the natural capital of the vast boreal and arctic ecosystems that support our economies and the Arctic Ocean. A rescue will require an immediate mobilization for a great common endeavour, on a scale that vastly exceeds that for any previous great cause in human history.
“Gennadiy Ivanov’s paintings have a distinctive communicative power. Within the raw energy of colour and motion, Gena captures his subject with elements of pure stillness – an absolute likeness suggesting sensations or emotions that are instantly recognisable. This immediacy gives Ivanov’s work an unusually broad appeal, as audiences are drawn to paintings that are brilliantly beautiful and perfectly legible.”
