Art of Ice

New Zealand artist David Trubridge features at San Francisco’s Natural World Museum in an exhibition entitled Melting Ice: A Hot Topic, which addresses the theme of climate change from a global perspective. Trubridge’s ‘On Thin Ice’ is a series of three panels of “dark rolled steel sheeting riven by laser cuts, with the cracks getting bigger in each panel until the last one shatters into a maelstrom – a schematic of melting sea ice as seen from above.” Trubridge’s trip to Antarctica as an Antarctica New Zealand Arts Fellow in 2004 inspired the installation. Melting Ice next moves to Chicago where it runs until September 1.
