NASA invited me to join their Operation IceBridge, which for the last 8 years has been mapping the geometry of the ice at both Poles. I joined them on flights over Antarctica in the Fall of 2016, and then again over Greenland and parts of Arctic Canada in the Spring of 2017. We flew on 12 hour flights, only 1500 feet above glaciers, sea ice, and mountaintops. I was able to witness an entirely new perspective of the ice, and in most cases, one that no artist had ever seen before.
These expeditions inspired a new body of work that explores aerial views of polar ice, translating the magnificence that I experienced flying over these large and beautiful ice masses. I will be updating works here as they are completed.
