Nirvana. Print on ice by Eszter Augustine-Sziksz.
“Eszter Augustine-Sziksz…screen-prints photos of old ancestors from her grandmother’s photo collection on ice sheets. During the printing process the ink freezes to the ice. When the ice starts to melt under the image, the ink dissolves into water and starts to slowly fade away. Her process, working and printing on ice allows her to step above everyday physical and chronological limitations. She can freeze time and control when it starts to unfreeze or thaw” (Thaw to Spring Works, exhibition at Eggman & Walrus Art, Santa Fe, NM, March 16 - April 1, 2012).
