Meltwater, 2024 ongoing

In 2023 I had the opportunity to travel to Iceland to explore, draw, and research glaciers. I was interested in the effects of climate change on the melting of glacier ice and how that might be represented in painting. The experience of sitting still watching and listening as the ice was transforming in front of me was compelling.

This series of paintings will bring together imagery derived from maps of the glacial rivers, combined with the broken, collapsing forms of the glacier.

The exhibition will take place at Bett Gallery, Hobart in December 2024
