Ice Mountain III

 

'​Ice Mountain' is named after a giant inflatable moored off the waterfront at Chippewa Ranch Camp, Eagle River, Wisconsin, USA. The floating white pyramid served as a multi-use mecca for waterside activities. ​

The colours are exotic, strange, alien even, the natural world made otherworldly. The symbolic abstraction of flower petals surrounding the girl is inspired by the 1999 Sam Mendes film; ‘American Beauty’.

 

Only the bronzed lifeguard, painted  in a petroleum distillation sprinkled with gold dust, adds the presence of solidity. The figure surveys  from a distance; loose yet alert, relaxed yet vigilant. 

Approximately ten million children attend Summer Camps in North America each year. It is a transformative experience for many who refer to summer camp as their home away from home. A safe and nurturing environment and antidote to the digital age, 'campers' spend up to nine weeks each summer participating in high-engagement activities that emphasise physical and social skill-building, and being challenged in ways that teach the value and rewards of effort.
