WELCOME TO OUR SUITE
To create an artistic challenge for ourselves we have decided to “go within”. The suite is filled with sculpture which are carved within the blocks of ice. Realizing the sculptures turned out to be difficult because you have to think and act inside out and backwards to your intended final result.
Some of the figures are left hollow while others are filled with snow, creating the visual juxtaposition of imaginary and real. The sculpture at the entry “Reflecting Within” is a contemplation on Tims’ 90 year old father confronting his own mortality in the mirror as he approaches his impending death. As humans, we spend our lives denying and avoiding recognition of our mortality. But for some few the moment of acknowledgement does come. We, just as the ice, are all made of water and will one day melt away.
