Arctic Glacier is a limited edition silkscreen print by artist Barbara Rae.
From an edition of 75, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist.
'Commencing in 2015, I undertook four voyages following the route of the fabled North West Passage. The search for the elusive route to the east took many lives and was an obsession by countries eager to be first to form a new trade route to eastern markets.
I followed the desired route of the English explorer, John Franklin whose futile and ill prepared expedition ended in the loss of all lives.
My namesake, Dr John Rae, was sent out to find what fate befell them.
That was the motivation for my travels.
I was fascinated by this immense, desolate landscape, the home of the Inuit, and the thought of these English seamen, completely unaware of their chances of survival in this harsh, alien environment.
These majestic immense glaciers and icebergs in their quiet, silent world were compelling dramatic presences which in my mind contained the history of the futile struggle to tame the Arctic.'

About the artist
Barbara Rae is a Scottish painter and printmaker whose art has been exhibited across the globe. Known as an outstanding colourist, her work spans an array of mediums, including drawing, painting, screenprints, monoprints and etchings.
Rae mastered her craft at Edinburgh College of Art in the early 60’s. After being awarded a travel scholarship which saw her journey to France and Spain to continue her artistic education, Rae developed her fascination with travel, landscapes and in particular, the human traces and patterns of history that are left on a landscape, that characterise her work to this day.
To find inspiration, Rae travels the world. Once her sights are set on a location, she spends months getting to know the locals, diving into local history and familiarising herself with the landscape before she even thinks to open her sketch book.
Over the years, the accolades have come in thick and fast. In 1983, Rae was elected President of the Society of Scottish Artists. She was made a Member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1992, a Member of the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland in 1995 and a Royal Academician just one year later. Rae rounded off the 90s by being awarded a CBE and receiving an Honorary Doctorate from Napier University in Edinburgh.
A custom frame is the perfect way to complement your beautiful limited edition artwork. Our custom framing is a bespoke handmade service.
Own Art is a national initiative giving you the option to spread the cost of your contemporary art with 0% finance.
