13-01_linc_cornellAntarctica, a solo exhibit of original digital prints and sculpture by Boston artist Linc Cornell, opened in the Nesto Gallery on Friday, January 11. Organized jointly by Nesto Gallery Director Ian Torney and the artist, the exhibition shares photographs inspired by Mr. Cornell’s trip to the Antarctic, as well as a subsequent series of glass sculptures he created in reaction to that experience.

“Working intuitively, I stay open to discoveries and mistakes, which I blend into my process,” says Mr. Cornell. “Exploring themes of myth, time, mortality, change, decay, memory, dreams and the spiritual, sacred life, I strive to create poetic sculptural interventions where the creative experience becomes cathartic.”

Linc Cornell earned his B.S. in photojournalism from the S. I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University and his M.F.A. from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. For 25 years, he worked as an advertising and corporate photographer in the Boston area and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards for his photographic work.

Antarctica is featured in the Nesto Gallery—located on the lower level of the Art and Media Center—through February 8. Admission is free and open to the public.
