Iceberg - Scott ForsythRegular price $250.00
Scott Forsyth: An iceberg drifts through Lancaster Sound as the warm hues of a protracted Arctic sunset bathe the distant shoreline of Somerset Island. This is a digital painting created from an original photograph I took in 2015 while travelling through the Northwest Passage as an expedition photographer for Adventure Canada. This scene I imagine might be very similar to something that the acclaimed Canadian painter Lawren Harris might have seen in his trips to the Arctic several decades ago. However, much has changed in this relatively unseen region of the world, and this change is accelerating at an alarming pace. Still, the scale of nature under the Arctic skies is both inspiring and transformative to witness.
