Photographer Alyson Belcher recorded the freeze and thaw of ice formations during the unusually cold winter of 2017 in Bend, Oregon.  These studies read as abstract landscapes and challenge our sense of scale. Lines, shapes and textures combine with the mysterious qualities of light and shadow to create a confusing space that is fragile and fleeting. Belcher’s varied oeuvre reflects an overarching interest in subjects that change slowly over time.
