Artwork description

This new small-scale unique carborundum print is part of an ongoing series of work made during and following Rae’s travels by ship through the Arctic waters. Following in her namesake, explorer Dr. John Rae (who she is not related to, but very much inspired by), Rae has now made several journeys taking photographs and making sketches and small paintings in her cabin, which form the starting point for larger works and prints upon her return. In these prints, Rae layers on a silvery ink which sparkles against the darker blues and purples of the night sky in the Arctic that she encountered on her travels.

Croker Bay is an Arctic waterway in Qikiqtaaluk RegionNunavut, Canada.
