Centenary Exhibition: Polar Ice, Fragile Beauty
Stunning paintings and prints of the dramatic frozen scenery of the Antarctic by landscape painter Rowan Huntley, Artist in Residence aboard HMS Scott in Antarctica during 2010.
Rowan first visited Antarctica with the British Royal Navy’s Survey ship HMS Scott on a month long artist’s residency placement in 2010. This unique opportunity was awarded to Rowan by the Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute and the Royal Navy after a selection process, as part of the Scott 100 celebrations. It proved to be an incredible, challenging experience and one which she enormously enjoyed. Rowan has since undertaken a second trip to the Antarctic regions as Artist in Residence of environmentally aware cruise ship MV Planciuss.
Rowan enjoys painting many types of landscape, from coastline and sea to moorland and wooded riverbank. However, the very essence of her work lies in her love and fascination for snow, rock and ice. Rowan has always had a deep affinity for mountain environments and her enthusiasm for those wild, often frozen landscapes now lies at the heart of her work. Together with ephemeral skies and the dramatic light which emanates from them, this incredible scenery provides endless artistic challenge and inspiration. http://www.rowanhuntley.co.uk
