About the Artist
I began taking photographs about 10 years ago after getting an iPhone, and I still
use that as my primary camera. While working at Upstate Medical University
(Syracuse NY), I participated in On My Own Time, a visual arts program for local
businesses in collaboration with the Everson Museum. Employers in the Syracuse
area hosted exhibits of art contributed by their employees. A panel of judges then
selected the best works from each exhibit to display in the Everson Museum. One
of my photographs was chosen for display in 2018.
My current “ice pix” journey began in 2020 when I came across a small-platesized
piece of ice, looked through it at a light-catcher hanging in a window, and
saw the colorful, transformed images produced as I moved the ice around. I
grabbed my camera and started clicking. Much work to refine the process
resulted in the “Frozen Light” images.
The photos seen here were infused onto an aluminum panel featuring a glossy
coating and UV-resistant ink to prevent fading. As the images are abstract, the
attached hangars allow one to choose any orientation, and to change the
orientation as desired.
