Ice provides an opportunity to experiment with opposites. Working with ice sculptures and finding the nuances within the ice structure, became an integral part of the KCBG Photography project. In fact, 'Ice Owl' seen above, was my inspiration for the ShopVida design "Weather".
Water in this frozen state was an opportunity for me to feature the present impurities. The sculptured form, with all of it's impurities and crevasses is what I try to capture with the image's ice flaws and fractures. When ice melts it absorbs energy. Our desire to preserve ourselves, or any ice sculpture, is metaphorically an impossible task. Like ice, we will eventually melt away, but while present, we're magical.
My pieces named "Iced" in the slideshow below, became a feature for the New York State's Centre for Bioethics and Humanities as part of their Healing Muse Journal as well as the Scarborough Big Arts Book. 'Woman of Ice' was published in The Tishman Review.
