Susan Bolles’s exhibition Frost discovers an emotional escape to the safety of childhood through a frosty car window. All of the digital images were shot with the camera of an HTC Desire Eye cell phone. Images were shot in and around Reykjavik, Iceland in January 2016 as the daylight faded. At the edge of the Arctic circle, there are only 4 hours of daylight in January. While in Iceland as the last faint glow of the Arctic sun’s four hours of daylight was fading, the artist noticed a small smudge the size of a thumbprint, she reached for her phone, and shot 3,000 photos. One image is enlarged as a photomural to cover the entire back wall of the gallery to bring the viewer tumbling into this world. The remaining photographs are arranged and printed in sequences of multiple images to emulate the journey in a car.
