Thomas Pickarski “Ice Carnival” oil on stretched canvas

Statement:

Early on in my visual art practice, I became intrigued with the happenstance of occasionally discovering abstracted forms in nature. I developed the process of seeking out unusual shapes, by traveling through the fragile settings and desolate landscapes where they tend to be located. This drew me to arctic regions where I discovered a deep love for the eternal beauty of icebergs. They possess characteristics of color, shape, line, form, and scale that exist independent from visual references we tend to be familiar with in the natural world. I find them to appear sculpturally magnificent, as if crafted in a way that seems too perfect for this world. In this series of photographs, I aim to portray both the ethereal beauty of icebergs, as well as the other-world-liness of the landscapes in which they exist.
