ARTIST STATEMENT:

Georgia “Gene” Berryhill is an artist and art historian who is concerned about our environments, protection of people and their significant material culture worldwide. For example, she shot 200 photographs of an environmentally devastated region near Cottbus, Germany, and created a documentary presentation called “Transforming Landscapes.” The IBA presentation posted to the right  promotes awareness of industry’s environmental, social and spiritual impact and focuses on the unique culture that was wiped out in Cottbus during the GDR years. “Awareness is an important factor in promoting successful environmental change,” Berryhill says. “I’ve found that beauty helps to attract people to important causes, so I try to share the beautiful moments along with the issues of truth I’ve encountered.” (Walden Journal)
