A work in progress, Transformation is the last of the Arctic Sonata series. Icebergs are a metaphor for life. They are born, drift out to sea where they undergo many changes — rollover, disintegration, shattering — before they dissolve into the ocean. While they are not in themselves examples of climate change; it is natural for glaciers to calve in summer. They have become used as a primary example of climate change in action. Now, with surging glaciers and unprecedented warm temperatures, the resulting increase in the number of icebergs being calved and the increasing instability of salt water glacier fronts is notable. My choice was to reference the impermanence by painting the short-lived icebergs in a style reminiscent of Eastern Orthodox icons. A reminder that the world is changing fast, and we must transform with it.
