Roger Jordan, ‘Virgin Ice / sculptural book’, 2017, Andra Norris Gallery

Mixed media sculptural abstract photographic triptych book features three scenes of virgin ice ponds in California's Yosemite National Park. Roger Jordan explores abstractions at the edge of the natural world through a body of work focused on clouds, water, reflections, and sand. 'Virgin Ice' is a handmade “sculptural” book that features three images bound in Japanese mohair bookcloth, which has the appearance of silk. The book may be picked up and intimately experienced, and then displayed on its wooden wall mount — which comes with the "book"— in various ways. Media includes archival pigment prints in an edition of 3, Japanese mohair bookcloth and wood. Photographs are protected with a hand applied UV varnish. Stunning on its own or presented in a collection of other Jordan triptych books. The book is 8 x 34 inches when fully open and 8 x 11 inches when closed.
