ARCTIC WONDERLAND

Arctic Wonderland by canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson was born, while participating in an artist’s residency on board of a double masted schooner in the Norwegian territory of the Arctic Circle. Visiting different sites, ranging from untouched vistas of pure landscape to abandoned mining camps, she photographed what she saw. She described the experience as ‘amazing, exotic, breathtakingly beautiful and sublime.

After such an experience, one can’t help speculating about the impact we have on this planet.

Painting confetti, fireworks and banners inhabit the landscapes with ink on her prints, the presents wonderlands that have a double meaning referring to the brilliant beauty of the landscape, but also to the absurdity of how we colonize this place.
