Description

With commentaries by Todd Wilkinson; Billy Arnaquq; Manitoba Senator Patricia Bovey, FRSA, FCMA; Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario; Wade Davis; Robert Bateman; John Geiger; and others, this impressive volume highlights over a decade of awe-inspiring oil paintings of the Canadian Arctic by renowned landscape artist, Cory Trépanier.

With a backpack full of painting, filming and camping gear, Cory Trépanier traversed more than 40,000 kilometres through six Arctic national parks and 16 Arctic communities—and exploring many more places in between—in a biosphere so remote and untouched that most of its vast landscape had never been painted before.

Into the Arctic represents the most ambitious body of artwork ever dedicated to the Canadian Arctic. Featuring vivid and unforgettable imagery together with engaging essays that will inspire and educate, this collection enables readers to experience Cory’s evocative and authentic vision of a land that few have had the opportunity to even visit, let alone preserve on canvas. This is a place where remoteness no longer offers the protection it once did from an uncertain future that will impact us all.

Editorial Reviews

"There's something interesting about a man able to channel both the adrenaline rush of wilderness adventure and the patient focus of a representational painter."

— Galleries West

"The paintings have a historical feel. Looking at them, one's mind drifts easily to the early artists who documented the unfolding colonial project across Canada's southern reaches."

— Galleries West
