Into the Arctic: Painting Canada's Changing North features perhaps the most ambitious body of artwork ever devoted to the Far North of Canada. Cory Tr panier journeyed to the Arctic five times between 2006 and 2018, travelling more than 60,000 kilometres to visit over a dozen Inuit communities and six national parks, sketching and painting en plein air the stunning landscapes he encountered. The result is an awe-inspiring portrait of the breathtaking lands and waters that have sustained the Inuit for countless generations--and are now experiencing tremendous changes that will affect the entire planet. This gorgeous volume features over 120 paintings, as well as several dozen sketches and photos that document both the process and adventure behind the works. Alongside this vivid imagery are engaging essays that offer insight into Cory's inspirations and artistic evolution, as well as the challenges facing a warming North. This collection brings home to readers Cory's unforgettable vision of an evocative land that few southerners may have the privilege to visit, and conveys the urgency with which we must act to protect it for generations to come. Includes contributions by Billy Arnaquq, of Nunavut Experience Outfitting Services; Robert Bateman; Senator Patricia Bovey; Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario; Wade Davis; John Geiger, CEO, The Royal Canadian Geographic Society; and Dr. Mauri Pelto, director of the North Cascades Glacier Climate Project.
