Iceberg, 2007, Installation view
Marking the first Southern California museum exhibition for Richard Carter and Margaret Pezalla-Granlund, Iceberg presented two independent bodies of work about a topic that has long captivated artists. Carter’s paintings and drawings of icebergs ranged in size from small to monumental and revealed the haunting beauty, dramatic sculptural quality, and unique character of individual icebergs—from the poetic and atmospheric to the stark and foreboding. Pezalla-Granlund’s iceberg sculptures, formed from paper and foam core, were fragile and irregular, lightweight and easily crushed—in purposeful opposition to their real-world counterparts. Suspended from the ceiling, five icebergs of various dimensions floated flat side up with their asymmetrical, jutting edges extending towards the floor. In the intimate space of Project Room 1, the two treatments resonated to immerse the viewer in the awe and mystery of icebergs.
