I refer to this series as The Color of White, which is primarily inspired by my experience of Alaska's immersive and beautiful white-on-white winter landscape. Created by using three separate images captured over time, each artwork in this series usually an hour or so to shoot and then blended over one another to create a colorful multiple exposure image. Mountain landscapes inspire me. Growing up in West Texas's flat planes offered the distant summits of New Mexico, Colorado, California, and now Alaska a certain allure. When I see a mountain, my eyes move skyward, seeking the peak. ~ Tom
⋙ Field Notes
The soft light and the movement of the clouds make Portage Glacier 04 a magical image. As the clouds move in and out of the glacier, obscuring and then revealing the scene, the light adds soft forms to the mountainscape. The telltale black glacial ice peaks through the snow on the image's far-right, almost blanketing Portage Glacier. I have made several works in this series around Portage glacier is an inspirational place to visit.
