THE ART OF ICE

A sensational exhibition is currently on show at Chris Beetles Gallery in London.

The works on view (and for sale) feature a stunning array of paintings by Nicholas Romeril celebrating his recent expedition to Antarctica aboard HMS Protector as Artist-in-Residence for the Friends of the Scott Polar Institute.


Breaking Ice, Antarctica is a collection of paintings ranging in size from vast canvases to small, sketch-book dimensions, all of which capture the breathtaking beauty of the region of our world where ever-changing vistas of snow-swathed volcanic peaks and blue-and-white ice-scapes are relentlessly re-sculpted by the forces of wind and water.

Romeril's mastery of subject and medium is astonishing: capturing the awesome immensity of Antartica's icebergs, the vast expanses of sea and sky and the dramatic play of light, shadow and reflections. The results, individually and collectively, are achingly beautiful: their sense of an eternal meditative silence offering a rare cooling and calming gift for our frenzied age.
