Throughout her 42 year-long career as an art teacher, Doris McCarthy traveled extensively within Canada and beyond. In the years following her retirement in 1972, McCarthy embarked on annual trips to the Arctic, which she would continue until she was 94. Her polar explorations sparked her enduring passion for remote landscapes. In Antarctica from Above, a group of sculptural landforms and icebergs are silhouetted against a wash of soft sunlight and a fluid palette of violet, orange and glacial blues. McCarthy’s aerial composition deftly captures the sublime and atmospheric qualities of the Antarctic and its surrounding waters, and is a striking example of her later work.
