Sermersuaq

Greenland, 2014

Greenland’s deteriorating ice sheet is one of the world’s last empty places and truly sublime landscapes. On a recent expedition to the Arctic Thomas’s work focuses on the immense retreat and melting of the ice sheet’s Western edge where a new black, rocky desertscape is expanding as the ice creaks, groans and disintegrates. Thomas’s resulting abstract photographic explorations reveal the dynamic, sublime and enigmatic qualities of Sermersuaq, inviting the viewer to contemplate their own relationship with this isolated, fragile and ephemeral icescape.
