Carolyn Marks Blackwood – ‘Ice’

Carolyn Marks Blackwood’s series ‘Ice’ – capturing in abstract fragments the crashing drama of the ice to emphasize the energy of natural environment and ephemeral state of being.

Born in Alaska, the artist has always been fascinated with winter and ice. Though this is a familiar theme, she redefines their beauty in a metaphoric sense, showing ice jagged edges look dangerous as broken glass, and yet there is an enigma, and poetry, in these geometric shapes and palette of delicate colours created as a result of miracle of light.

“One loses one’s balance, and one’s breath simply looking at them.” (Alan Klotz)
