Signed copies available! Publisher's Description

A Field Guide to Snow and Ice is McCartney's interpretation of the idea of winter. The series includes images of snowfalls and wildflowers, frozen waterfalls and stalagmites, snowdrifts and piles of gypsum sand, as well as other icy forms, in an effort to explore and reinterpret natural structures and the way they can reference multiple ideas on both micro and macro levels. The ambiguity of scale and substance helps the subjects transcend their source. With less there becomes more.

This work invites viewers to took at the winter that surrounds them in a new way, abstracted from the vast landscape - a winter of the artist's imagination. Combining images of true snow and ice with forms reminiscent of these substances initiates conversations regarding personal experiences, truth in photography, and recurrent forms throughout nature, as well as suggesting and encouraging a wider and more open way of looking.

Includes 48 black and white and full color plates printed with UV inks on uncoated paper. Leporello binding with multiple panel widths and stiff front and back covers. Spine closure printed on synthetic paper with an essay by Mark Alice Durant.

With the spine detached from the front cover, the book becomes an installation piece approximately 34 feet in length.
