Nicole Dextras photographs filter into my mind on these days with ugly grey skies, rain and darkness, and in viewing her images, I get a sense of beauty in all that grey that I may not find just looking out my window… I think her work is beautiful. I came across the work at the 23 Sandy Gallery, run by the fabulous Laura Russell. I have been haunted by the work since. The series I find most serene and beautiful is Iceworks. Her decision to encase clothing in ice, then watch them degrade over time and document the shift, is stunning in her muted color palette, choice of landscapes, and connection to the surrounding environments.
