Lower East Side, NYC: Lichtundfire and curcioprojects are pleased to present Sense of Ice, featuring eight artists whose practice in painting, digital photography, and sculpture represents ice ranging from realistic depictions to a metaphorical sense to works addressing climate change. Sense of Ice has been collaboratively conceived and curated by Robert Curcio, curcioprojects, and by Priska Juschka, Lichtundfire, following their previous exhibit Luxurious Growth. 

The non-traditional materials of Ellen Alt’s mixed media “paintings” have us swept away by contradictory emotions – beauty and devastation, fascination and revulsion – for the glacial landscape. The viewer is almost falling into Pamela Casper’s oil paintings that capture the mysterious beauty and impending tragedy of melting Arctic ice. 

Bob Clyatt’s sculptural reliefs of America’s all-consuming society sit motionless in a seemingly solid block of ice made of Hydrocal, plaster and Carrera marble.  Jane Fire’s altered digital photograph combines an image of horses with an image of holiday wire reindeers “in combat” alongside copied letters written between Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein from 1932 discussing how mankind can survive the peace after WWI - is an icy cool anti-war work.

The subtle, but impactful, abstracted fragments of Deborah Freedman’s landscapes point to a larger world view slipping away.  Wintry tranquility in one work by Bobbie Moline-Kramer becomes an icy maelstrom in another.  Martin Weinstein’s multi-layered acrylic panel landscape paintings portray the shimmering light and atmospheric effects of a frozen wonderland.

The intersection of art and quantum physics in Augustus Goertz’s mixed media paintings interpret macroscopic ground-state degenerating into a form of collective tunneling known as spin ice.
