When Ice Burns: New Works by Diane Best

October 19-December 4

Opening Reception Saturday, October 21, 5-7PM

The works in “When Ice Burns” were influenced by Best’s recent trips to Iceland that included a seven-day journey on a 100+ yr. old wood schooner through the fjords of remote east Greenland. As an artist, Best has been particularly drawn to the vast empty spaces of the Southwest desert. In the wild expansive emptiness and harsh landscape of wild Greenland, and sub-arctic Iceland, Best experienced that same sense of discovery and wonder for place. Best’s drawings, photos, and films reflect the commonality of vastness, starkness, and space in the dramatic desert and frozen landscapes.
