The Heart of Art: CastAways

SeriesExquisite silks frozen in time.

As part of her series, CastAways, artist Nicole Dextras placed these orange silk fabrics out in the ice cold landscape. Once frozen, they resemble natural life forms, reminiscent of women wearing long, flowing gowns. The beauty of this ephemeral art form lies in its brevity and the mystery it leaves behind once it melts and disappears.

Editor’s note: This is the latest installment of a new art series at EcoSalon, The Heart of Art.
