Edward Burtynsky wins Toronto Film Critics Association Prize

We are delighted to announce that Flowers Gallery artist Edward Burtynsky has won the Toronto Film Critics Association Prize. The winning film 'Watermark' blurs the boundaries between documentary film-making and fine art, and was produced in collaboration with Jennifer Baichwal. As one of the world's most prized and endangered resources, our relationship with water, how we use it and the consequences of our actions are brought under close scrutiny within this film. 'Watermark' visits multiple sites to showcase the contrasting state of water across the globe, including the biggest arch dam in the world and the barren desert delta. This is paired alongside a more intimate exploration of how humans are drawn to water,'from the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach to the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, where thirty million people gather for a sacred bath in the Ganges at the same time'. The artist will receive a $100,000 cash prize for his work, which celebrates water as a magnificent force of nature too often taken for granted.

Flowers Cork Street exhibited an overview of large-format colour photographs in October 2013 to coincide with the launch of 'Watermark'. This solo exhibition showcased an ambitious representation of water's increasingly fragmented lifecycle and humanity's past, present and future relationship with the natural world.
