Thaw explores how landscapes are made and unmade through the mixing of photography, drawing, painting and found materials. I am fascinated by how pictures of landscapes are crafted and I am haunted by the possibility that we might someday have to fabricate winter due to global warming. The images in Thaw consist mostly of surfaces, or materials that don't quite meet the definition of objects -- muck, melt, and twisted light.
The first iteration of this work was exhibited at Water Bar in Minneapolis in Winter 2016 - 2017. Water Bar is a space for art & science focused on issues of water and climate change.
