Arctic Ice Melt
Artist's Point of View

Arctic Ice Melt is one of my first silkscreens that I made. My background is in ceramics, MFA in Ceramic Sculpture, and until a few years ago, I had zero knowledge of how to make a silkscreen. I took classes at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and added silkscreens to my artistic talents. After completing two layers of Arctic Ice Melt the professor came by and looked at what I was doing. He told me that I should go from light to dark in my layers when printing and that I was doing the opposite. Although I listened, I kept on working the way I had started and finished the piece. When I was done the professor came by again, looked at the silkscreen and said, “I guess I was wrong; you can go from dark to light!” I have often thought of this experience in context of climate change. Maybe we can go ‘from dark to light’ if we can reverse how many people think.
