Carrara – Cava Bianco, 2018

Artist Statement

 

Workers first began removing stone from the mountains of Tuscany more than 2,000 years ago. Iconic works such as Rome’s Pantheon and Michelangelo’s statue of David are all made of it – firmly entrenching this beautiful material into a nations identity, art and architecture. Over the years it’s extraction has increased to supply foreign export fuelling debates between environmentalists, quarries owners and the government of Tuscany. One side calls to preserve wild areas, while the other argues to preserve an ancient craft that has sustained a regions economy for centuries. A polemic issue with no clear answer.

David Burdeny’s Masters in Architecture and Interior Design background combined with his upbringing in the vast Canadian prairies provides the template for his keen technical ability, enduring patience and minimalist aesthetic. Recently moving from using large format film to now the finest available digital cameras and precision optics, his images are rendered large and detailed. A Bright Future- Photographs of Russian Subways, Theaters and Palaces  2015 received an explosion of media interest, especially in the UK and Russia. While Burdeny was in New York City to receive his First Place Award from IPA for Avata Metro Station, St. Petersburg, Russia  in the Category of Historic Architecture, and was interviewed for the most recent articles for The Guardian UK  and Wired publications amongst several others. In 2012, the Ancora Series of 2010  was exhibited at the Centre for Photographic Art, Carmel CA, Curated by Richard Gadd. Burdeny has won several gold awards in international art photography competitions, most significantly receiving International Photographer of the Year in the Nature category for Canada, revealed at the Lucie Awards Ceremony in New York City, October 2008. His first book Shorelines  sold out in both the limited collector edition and trade publication.
