Project Statement (2012-2015)
During the colder months I wander along the shore, among frozen crevices and tidal pools, observing the endless variations of the texture of ice, and the shapes and colors that lie beneath. Occasionally when light, temperature, terrain and time of day all coincide in just the right way, the ice blooms with a startling luminosity and richness of color, as if it were bathed in its own inner radiance. For me there is a hint of sadness in this fragile beauty, given the uncertain future of our changing climate. “Frozen Light” attempts to capture this illumination which reveals itself only in the darkest months of the year.
