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.
Portions of this ongoing series of images has been 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); Soo Visual Art Center in Summer 2018, and teh KIehle Gallery at St. Cloud State University in Winter 2018.
