Acrylic on Canvas – 42 x 59.5 cm
Erebus, located on Ross Island, Antarctica, is the southernmost active volcano in the world. Beyond a dramatic sea of ice, a lava lake bubbles in the summit crater, feeding a continuous plume of gases across the Antarctic continent. The painting is formed by a build up of soft white and grey layers followed by furious opaque marks in neon orange, black and purple. Bold brushstrokes are visible throughout signifying the plumes of gas and steam that can be regularly seen. The volcano sits above a thin slice of crust, so molten rock more easily rises up from Earth’s interior. An extreme land of fire and ice.
