About The Work

This unique painting is from Argentinean artist Irene Kopelman’s 50 Metres Distance or More. For this body of work, the artist departed from the Southern-most tip of Argentina to Antarctica on an eight-person vessel, the sailboat the “Spirit of Sydney.” Over the course of 26 days, she documented the stark Antarctic landscape all the while braving the cold, rain and snow. The spatial constraints of the boat, its constant movement and the harsh climactic conditions came to form integral parts of the work. During the journey, Kopelman was compelled by how naturally the landscape of Antarctica lent itself to painting; the light and shadows, the subtle gamut of whites and blues, everything appeared as if it had been captured on canvas. Upon her return to the studio, she produced several large-scale oil paintings that represent a central part of the exhibition. These works, as with much of her work, come into dialogue with the tradition of Romantic landscape painting, attempting to locate some essence or feeling beyond the domain of the seen.
