Frank Webster currently resides in Queens, New York. A strong concern for contemporary environmental issues permeate his recent work on Iceland. After spending time at the NES Artist Residency in Skagaströnd on the east coast of the bay Húnaflói, Webster commenced a series of large scale paintings and works on paper depicting the ethereal landscape of Northwest Iceland. Although at first glance these works hark back to the tradition of the sublime, on further examination they reveal a wistfulness for things passing, permeated with a sense of urgency that is emblematic of our current period of rapid climate change.

Second Street Gallery will be exhibiting 27 works on paper from Webster’s Icelandic series.
