Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson created her series “Arctic Wonderland” after completing a residency on board a double-masted schooner in the Norwegian territory of the Arctic Circle. Each of the twelve days at sea the group visited a different site on land, ranging from untouched vistas of pure landscape to abandoned mining camps. Left with only calendar-quality photographs, she wondered how to capture how she felt about her experience that had been outside of the camera’s frame…

“I figured out I can add that in – I can paint that in. All my worries, all my concerns, and all my hopes and fears of the future of this place, I can paint it right on.”
