Ocean Ice Collection
Over the last few years I have found myself thinking about the state of the world, the sometimes miraculous healing of wild places as we withdrew and the beauty of nature. I have been inspired by the conservation messaging 'we care for the things we love' and the people who ceaselessly strive to show us why we should care. The Oceans & Ice collection is inspired by the beautiful and evocative aerial images of Greenland by the artist and advocate, Roger Fishman. I was moved to make this work when viewing his images and researching the accelerating loss of ice mass due to climate change, which is now exposing ice from the last ice age. The beautiful colours, forms and patterns seem to belie the reality.
I have used forms based on water vessels as a conduit for the imagery, as we often seem to use the earth and her oceans as a commodity...let's change that...
