Delicate Balance (Chicago)
Shackleton’s work depicts an uncertain future where cities blend with nature. Through an optimistic lens, she creates unique urban landscape paintings that combine multiple locations into a single composition. Inspired by the urgency of climate change, she questions what’s to come – be it utopian or apocalyptic. Forests are burning, lands are flooding and glaciers are melting. As extreme weather events become more frequent and hit closer to home, Shackleton’s paintings are becoming less about the future and more about the present.
