Eona Murray Aitken

  • Work
  • Biography
My preoccupation with northern landscapes has been extended to include some of the dramatic geological and glacial features which I encountered on a recent trip to Iceland. My current work explores themes of glacial retreat, volcanic activity and geothermal power, all of which are relevant to present-day concerns about climate change and the need for sustainable energy.
