Join Lichtundfire and the Artists for an Informal Artist Talk and Exhibition Walk Through, while also addressing Climate Change, for REMEMBER WHEN IT WINTER WAS: followed by a reception. REMEMBER WHEN IT WINTER WAS is a group exhibition of works in all media, reflecting snow, ice and winter in various ways by composition, concept, palette, temperature and texture ― while ranging from abstraction to abstracted representation.
The exhibition's title also connotes a potential dystopia, as a result of climate change, evoking the unsettling feeling that nothing will remain the same, and that soon we will nostalgically reflect upon the time when winter was still a substantial and lived experience in our lives. Potentially closer to an era when winter will be distant memory and a romantic idea, projections into our near future imply a reality without winter as we know it. The foreboding of a life without winter leads to the uncanny truth about ourselves and our options at hand. Do we choose to hope or do we give in..?
Even though predominately abstract and semi-abstract, the works in this show, imply and hold facet-fully the momentous concept of a real world phenomenon, an- in front of our eyes- vanishing season ― leaving us seemingly incapable to reverse its course.
This hurtful awareness of what may be, potentially could have been, and ultimately was, is present in this exhibition: All work visually appeals and comments on our sense and sensibility connected with winter as we know it in our hemisphere, and on the season's impact on our lives, and on the imprints it leaves on both our consciousness and subconsciousness.
