About the Artwork

Freeze Thaw I and II are carefully constructed two-layer silkscreens made using appropriated images of icebergs that provide a geological platform to highlight a perceived architectural presence. 

With her minimal aesthetic and playful use of materials, she alludes to the notion of language and this immediacy with new work made in response to her time spent in Norway and Iceland where she created abstract forms and connections that endeavor to entice and confound.
