Marietta Patricia Leis

 

Marietta Patricia Leis continues her “Ice” series with a new body of works that reflect her most recent trip to Iceland.  Having previously travelled to Alaska and Scandinavia in summer months, this trip marked her first visit to the Arctic in winter. 

Leis is fascinated with the effects of light, and her formed birch panels are meant to convey her experience of seeing the icy landscape in 24-hour darkness. These works call attention to her interaction with the environment: the burnished graphite is silky smooth and the vast expanses of cool white are pocked with craters hinting at what lies underneath.
