One can sense an alternation between direct experience and a more distant analysis in the work of Irene Kopelman. She is deeply fascinated by natural phenomena and their acute impact on the senses, and equally intrigued by the methods and tools we use to understand them. This book focuses on glaciers, alpine forests, and mountain landscapes sculpted by avalanches, especially their texture, morphology, and “readability”. It includes drawings and field notes made during multiple trips to the Swiss Alps, as well as paintings produced later in the studio. Contributions by various experts with whom she worked offer insight into glaciology, ecology, and art history.
