Here are a few new works painted on location in Antarctica . Special thanks to Daisy Gilardini and Visionary Wild for putting this trip together. Looking forward to 3 upcoming Antarctica, South Georgia and Falklands Island Voyages starting in October 2019 in which i will be on board as a artist in residence with the One Ocean Expeditions Team, for more information about these itineraries please visit my events page.
News and blog posts about recent works, workshops, events, presentations, expeditions and exhibitions by Canadian artist David McEown.
The attached video clips and paintings were inspired by a trip to the Sub Antarctic Island of South Georgia in October- November 2018. We departed by ship from the Falkland Islands where I had time to warm up the brushes and spend time painting at a wonderful nature reserve of Volunteer Point.
The South Georgia trips were in particularly rewarding as we participated in a photo symposium led by some of the finest photographers in the field. It was great to be in nature with so many folks engaged in he art of seeing, plus it was fun to conduct a few art workshops to complement all the fantastic expertise ranging from ornithology, history and marine biology.
It has been my long term project to record and raise awareness about the fragility of these natural wonders as well as try to express their inherent beauty. Many other painting from these regions and be seen on his websites Antarctic Galleries.
Many thanks to One Ocean Expeditions and the hospitality in the Falklands for a successful voyage. So much reference material for future creations and upcoming presentations!
