Annals of the Former World

Jökulsárlón, Iceland, 2018
Iceland’s famous diamond beach, near the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, was the result of chunks of ice calving off a melting glacier into the lagoon, drifting into the ocean, and then washing ashore on the black sand beach before they ultimately melted. Eventually all of Iceland’s glaciers retreated far enough that melting ice never reached the ocean, but for many years Jökulsárlón was one of Iceland’s premier tourist attractions.

I’m proud to release my newest body of work, Annals of the Former World. As you’ll see from the portfolio on my website, this project is a big departure for me in that in includes text and also, and more importantly, is intended to be advocacy for environmental causes relating to climate change.

Annals is structured as an exhibition a century in the future, looking back at what we had and lost in the twenty-first century through the eyes of a viewer in the twenty-second. I believe that this project will occupy me for the indefinite future, so please consider this the first incarnation of the work.

I’d love to hear what you think once you’ve had a chance to take a look. Through June 9th, you can also see six large pieces from this portfolio at the Melt Down exhibition at the CMCA in Rockland. Thank you!
