Exhibition: Reflections on Climate Change
Casa de la cultura “MICHAEL JACOBS”, Frailes (Jaen)
August 24–26, 2018
A selection of recent artworks by Yolanda del Riego through which she reflects her concerns about the environment. The exhibition also includes works from the prior exhibitions Unsustainible Escalation and Trees to Meet You, also dedicated to this subject. Rooted in the emotions of an artist, the work of Yolanda del Riego conveys sadness, and often outrage, for the negative impact of human activity on our planet.
The exhibition consists of 31 digital prints through which the artist reflects on diverse forms of aggression that are devastating the planet.
Works from the Aqueduct series
This series of works features the Roman aqueduct of Segovia as a testimony of resistance.
Works from the series Don't Rock the Planet
The works in this series are interpretations of the delicate state of equilibrium of the planet.
Works from the series Paralells
The effects of climate change occur in parallel in different locations around the world.
The Checkerboard Landscape series
From the exhibition Unsustainable Escalation. The works in this series are based on the silhouette of a lone tree against a backdrop
in the form of a checkerboard. The different interpretations of the tree suggest a sad future in which trees are seen as mere decorative artificial objects.
The exhibition includes two of Yolanda del Riego's early digital prints, inspired by walks in an old growth forest in Sherwood Forest (a neighborhood in Bellevue, WA)
