FRESH 2018 ANNUAL SUMMER EXHIBITION

ADRIENE HUGHES — THREADED ICEBERGS

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

The images in Threaded Icebergs address environmental politics in the Arctic. The geometric lines constructed within this project, hand-sewn directly onto the surface of the photograph, mimic the tactile structure of shape that is inherent within the native Inuit language, as well as the form, movement, and light created by the land and water. The geometric pattern mirrors the sacred viewpoints of indigenous and religious practices throughout time, viewing the earth as sacred.
