Ro2 Art Gallery presents Adam Benjamin Fung: "Iceberg X" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Iceberg X," an exhibition of works by artist Adam Benjamin Fung. In his newest series, Fung recaptures the enchanting landscapes that he witnessed during his Artist Residency in the Arctic Circle. While his paintings offer a gorgeous glimpse into this frozen wonderland, Fung is also intent to provide a sobering reminder that many of these sites now look drastically different, or no longer exist, due to climate change.
Fung’s work features ghostly monochromatic renditions of the various glaciers, icebergs, and seas that inspired him, paired with an unexpected, yet unmistakable, symbol of loss. The significance of "Iceberg X" lies in its ability to present a visual quandary for the viewer; the X reinforces the painted surface, but its transparency allows the viewer to re-enter the painting as a window into another world.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 28.
