Portfolio > Ice Paintings

Towers, walls, and pyramids of ice cubes in various states of melting are, of course, impermanent. These ice structures were designed to fail and simply melt, returning to a prior state. Cast against dark backgrounds and photographed in high contrast light, there is something beautiful about these ice structures. The images feel dramatic and historical. There is also an element of absurdity in the act of committing these images to painting; ice is simply a temporary state of water that is destined to not to last, but a painting of ice seems like it could.
