“Bagley Lake with Containers” (2010): Mary Iverson’s images combine the dreamy, timeless landscapes of travel magazines with a complex system of intersecting lines and planes extending off the edges of cargo boxes. Iverson, another Seattleite, prepares her compositions by studying the shipping manifests from nearby ports and using their measurements, an attention to detail suggestive of a draftsman. These images deal with concepts of accumulation and industry; to get the whole scope of her statement visit her portfolio here: http://maryiverson.com
