The drawings are done before, during, and after a ship journey to Australian territories in Antarctica by the artist, Nick Hutcheson. His trip involved a class room of students in Victoria, Australia, who journey with him through his web site.
For 8 weeks Hutcheson draws from observation, the ship, stations, the people he met, various landscapes of rock, sea ice, and mountain peaks, elephant seals, penguins, and studies of earlier explorers. Drawing South (the web site) provided his visual, and written, observations, and what his work leads to after his trip. 2008.
Graphite pencil, coloured pencil and felt pens. Some drawings on acrylic ground.
Artist: Nick Hutcheson.
