Icebox is a painting formed inside an antique key box. The key box features a door which swings open to reveal a 3D, multi layered resin painting. The painting itself is inspired by my recent study of arctic exploration. More often than not, ships like this would get stuck in icy floes and would sit immobilized for one or more winters. The men aboard passed the time with games, chores, and small land based exploration missions. Sometimes the ships would never move again. In these cases the ships had to be abandoned and the crew would leave to seek help.
Cherish Springer is a painter and illustrator based in Boston, MA. With an affinity for nautical themes, she strives to push away from the norm of picturesque scenes of ships and beaches. Instead, she seeks out new imagery of shipwrecks and tales of adventure to illustrate and bring to life. Working in acrylics, gouache, and epoxy resin, Cherish works to create papercut-esk images through the layering of media.
