Greenland Ice Sheet II, glacier valley

$1,800.00

Slow moving ice makes its way through the moonlight to the Arctic Ocean, where the glacier calves without ceasing.

Description

Greenland Ice Sheet II, glacier valley, is an original one-of-a-kind fine art painting by Alison C. Dibble. It is oil on canvas, 24 x 24 x 1.5 inches (61 x 61 x 3.8 cm), unframed and ready to hang. The price ($1800 USD) includes handling, packing and shipping to the lower 48 states of the USA*.

My preoccupation with the Greenland Ice Sheet results from my perusal of the scientific literature regarding loss of ice during recent summers. In this depiction, which is from my imagination, a glacier is calving as it meets the ocean. Layers of ancient ice squeeze through a narrow valley in the moonlight, making wrenching noises as they pass bedrock outcrops. Beware, lower Manhattan and other low lying cities around the world. Sea level rise is real.
