Leo de Freyne
These geometric, stylized iceberg paintings by Dublin artist and writer Leo de Freyne capture the architecture of these natural structures and the poetry of their colossal presence. But the iceberg is of course more than an aesthetic object; this pristine, natural sculpture has also become a symbol for those other losses incurred due to climate change. And at a time when climate change threatens the environment perhaps more than ever, one worries that the inspiration for such paintings will soon become mere memory.
