My work consists of large scale, highly nuanced color photographs depicting the stark natural beauty and inherent impermanence of landscapes. These works are part of an ongoing investigation into the transformative quality of landscape.
The series called “Streams” graphically renders the pristine winter landscape of northern Iceland. Starting out as trickles, the streams find their way down the steep mountains, peeking through snow drifts, meandering, disappearing and reappearing in no coherent fashion. In the course of their downward flow, they begin to interconnect, colliding and interweaving, growing in size and character, creating remarkable and countless formations. The “Glaciers” series, shot in southern Patagonia, reveals an immense landscape of ice that is in a state of constant flux as it cracks, melts and refreezes.
These places, which seem lost in time, are a reminder that there are forces of nature at play; a sublime beauty far removed from our everyday lives. Their dreamlike palettes offer a window into an ephemeral world where scale and perspective become impalpable. These large artworks allow the viewer to question their own relationship to nature in private and contemplative way.
