    Mathias Kessler

    From the Series Staging Nature: Ilulissat W1 003, Greenland.

    Diasec face mount on 3 mm non-reflective gallery Plexi, Dibond backing and back brace Edition of 6: (2) 120 X 170 cm, (2) 100 X 157 cm, (2) 70 X 110 cm In 2007, Kessler embarked on an expedition to explore the Arctic Seas, where he produced his sublime images of ice lit by high-powered Hollywood cinematic lighting. In the dark stillness of night, far away from smog and light pollution, ideal conditions are met to obtain the best optical view, for small particles of dust at this hour rise in the atmosphere, while larger ones fall to the ground. The larger-than-life iceberg formations emerge as a stage with no actors, creating eerie, plastic images so dramatically detailed that the viewer is left questioning the reality behind the image.
