Scot of the Antarctic's Terra Nova Hut.

“Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale...”

The ill-fated Terra Nova Antarctic expedition led by the explorer Robert Falcon Scot better known as Scot of the Antactic set forth in seach of the pole in 1910. The journey would eventually claim several lives including Scot's own.

They wintered in a base camp hut which stands, fully stocked with their supplies to this day. It is a testament to and a document of those early 20th century explorers who risked and occasionally lost their lives in persuit of the unknown.

Originally commissioned for issue 6 of Ernest Journal this illustration forms part of a series examining the human relationship with shelters, sheds and cabins and our desire to explore or retreat into the wilderness to rediscover something intangible lost in the noise of everyday life

To convey a sense of isolation the drawings contrast the protection and warmth offered by these spaces against the starkness of and emptiness of their surroundings. To accentuate their otherness and remoteness further they are framed within an incomplete circle. A nod to the trope of looking at a far off place through binoculars or a telescope.

Individually signed and printed on 250gsm card stock.

A4 size (29.7x 42cm) - fits a standard A4 frame.

Supplied unframed & wrapped in a clear cello sleeve with a thick backing board.
