Erik Hoffner: Ice Visions

October 23, 2020 - February 14, 2021

The holes cut for ice fishing in ponds, lakes, and rivers refreeze overnight—creating fertile ground for nature’s wild artistic side. These perfectly augered circles become worlds at once interstellar and cellular in appearance. In the morning light, tiny bubbles from below are fixed almost magically in place among new inches of ice. These scenes come to life as eyes, galaxies, stars, or cells when rendered in Hoffner’s stunning black and white photographs.
