Into the Arctic

Over 50 oil paintings by artist and explorer Cory Trépanier

Into the Arctic showcases over fifty original oil paintings documenting Trépanier’s expeditions to the furthest reaches of the Canadian Arctic, a biosphere so remote and untouched, that most of its vast landscape has never been painted before.

Canadian painter, Cory Trépanier, created the body of work, drawn from four purposeful expeditions that spanned the course of a decade. The result is a time capsule of some of the planet’s most spectacular, yet fragile landscapes. During four extended expeditions to the far corners of the Arctic, Trépanier immersed himself into the land Canadians refer to as “The North,” hauling a backpack loaded with camping gear, and painting and filming supplies, which at times exceeded 100 lbs. He often traveled with Inuit, gaining first-hand knowledge from First Nation people. Confronting elements that included raging storms and ravenous hordes of mosquitoes, Trépanier’s motivation through it all was the inspiration for canvas and film born of experience in locations inexperienced by the population as a whole. The result is a remarkably unique and moving body of work that includes an unsurpassed collection of paintings.
