Ribbon of Highway, Alice Gur-Arie 2012.

In this image from the coast of Iceland, the fog hanging over the mountain peaks appears to have almost the same texture and colour as the water, giving an impression of ethereal mystery. It reflects a calm interrupted by an imagined ribbon of stark highway that obliterates the shoreline and follows the inlet. Along with The Lake at Midnight and Shore, this image comes from the series Iceland Blues.

Artists Statement

My work sits in the "sweet spot" where fine art and photography converge. I use photography to capture visual reality but then translate the emotional sensibility of the scene into images that challenge the viewer to consider the picture from a different perspective.

The themes of my work are as diverse as the countries from which the pictures originate. Within  that context, I strive to produce an image that is a rich, textured, and unexpected interpretation of the world around us. All the landscapes in this gallery, from Iceland and Italy, are examples of that creative approach.

About Alice Gur-Arie

Alice Gur-Arie began her career as a conceptual copywriter, graphic designer, and creative director, eventually responsible for positioning global brands, and developing and executing their marketing and communication strategies.

Returning to her creative roots several years ago as an artist/photographer and writer, Alice has produced five fine art photography exhibitions, including The Iceland Trilogy, held at the Embassy of Iceland in London, England, and Black, White and Red held in Nice, France.

About her work, she says, "It's about finding a moment, a scene, a subject, and retelling the image in a way that is true to, but at the same time unlike what the lens captured. I see my role as interpreting the story, asking the viewer to examine what they see, ponder what they think the story is about, and consider how it makes them feel."

Ms. Gur-Arie achieved early recognition of her individual creative style with two series of works nominated for a Terry O'Neill Tag photography award, Drama in the Fog, and Love on the Rocks from Iceland, Unsmiling Beauty. Subsequently, Tapestry, from the series Still, Quiet, Blue was long listed for the Aesthetica Art Prize. In addition to creating gallery works, Alice produces images exclusively for commercial licensing. Last year Bridgeman Images invited her to become a Studio Artist, and featured her as Artist of the Month for April 2015.

Ms. Gur-Arie also is known for her "straight" photography. Neither posed nor staged, much of this work, shot in international locations from Mumbai to Jerusalem, and Macau to New York, is part of her ongoing "street' project In Public Places.

Ms. Gur-Arie currently is writing a book of short stories and images. She holds degrees in English literature, Education and Business from York University in Toronto, Canada.
