The ice fisherman sits alone tweaking his methods to achieve the best results. The only thing outside his little shack is the harsh cold environment, but this is no concern for the fisherman who works and waits for the catch. We can draw parallels in the way many artists work. The “shack” or studio is a place where an artist can be alone, and the space furnished with the tools needed to get the job done.
We have playfully used the ice fisherman as a timely and wintery metaphor to represent how artists work with ideas and materials that reflect their surroundings. These surroundings could be the white, cold, flat environment of the Arctic, a blank canvas if you will. These artists have looked beneath the surface to find a flow, a movement of life interpreted in varying mediums and styles.
