The Succulent Taste of Summer

Ivana D. George

Ivana D. George is an interdisciplinary artist working in photography, sound, video, and mixed media since 1998. The starting point in her art practice is a belief that great art not only is visually compelling but that it should also have a subject matter, a meaning, and an inspirational purpose beyond the purely aesthetic. She believes in the power of art to inspire, inform and engage viewers in the critical issues of our time. She is passionate about exploring the relationship between humanity and the natural world and motivated by a love of exploration and learning. She takes on various roles such as gardener, mountain climber, investigator, and environmental activist in order to explore the world. In her art she shares her discoveries, insights and observations. As an artist who uses lens-based imaging, her aesthetic is one of carefully constructing an image rather than taking a picture. She manipulates lens-based media to construct a metaphor, idea or expression in her work.

She has exhibited her work in over 50 national juried and invitational exhibitions including Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Lens Culture Online, Flash Forward Photography Festival, The Griffin Museum, Newspace Center for Photography, Soho Photo Gallery, Dallas Video Festival, Junction Arts Festival and the Danforth Museum. Her work has been featured in solo and two person exhibitions at Panopticon Gallery, CAC in Las Vegas, Fort Point Gallery in Boston, Tower Hill Botanic Garden and Bridgewater State University. She has completed a fellowship residency at the Vermont Studio Residency Center. Her work has been written about in Orion Magazine, the Boston Globe, New England’s Bay Windows, the Las Vegas Sun, Atlanta’s Creative Loafing as well as several blogs. She holds a M.F.A. degree from the joint program of The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University. She is an Associate Professor of Art at Bridgewater State University (Massachusetts, USA), where she teaches all levels of black and white analog photography, historical photo processes, digital photography, video, and sustainability.
