A new exhibition at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, New York, presents works by Charles Burchfield that explore the impact of industrialization on the environment. Burchfield, who had a lifelong reverence for nature, is best known for his distinct depictions of the natural world, which are bursting with luminous colors, sinuous lines, and dynamic patterns. The works included in Blistering Vision are significantly bleaker, featuring soft brushstrokes and muted palettes.
