INTO THE ARCTIC
In 2006, Cory Trépanier set off on a decade-long quest to paint, film, and explore the spectacular landscapes of the Canadian Arctic. With packs full of painting, filming, and camping gear, Trépanier undertook 5 expeditions, traversed over 60,000 kilometres, explored 6 Arctic National Parks and 16 Arctic communities, and countless places in between. He travelled by plane, helicopter, ship, boat, canoe, and on foot, often with the Inuit, stripping back day-to-day accoutrements to the basics of hiking boots, food, and a tent, in order to immerse himself in his subject.
The INTO THE ARCTIC collection now includes over 100 oil paintings and graphite sketches and 3 documentary films.
Through the INTO THE ARCTIC art, films, media stories, online content and public speaking, Trépanier is inspiring others with the beauty of the Canadian Arctic, raising awareness about one of the most fragile regions of our planet.
