 2018 Asgard Expedition


Cory returned to Canadian Arctic in 2018, where for 2 weeks he hiked and painted for over 100kms in the dramatic landscapes of Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island, accompanied by his 19 year old daughter Sydney. One of the big goals was to find a view for a major painting of Mount Asgard as a companion piece to his 5 foot x 9 foot Mount Thor painting. He  was then picked up by One Ocean Expeditions in Pangnurtung, where he joined his wife wife Janet, collectors and other guests on an amazing 11 day voyage up the coast of Baffin Island and Devon Island.

AT REST, BEECHEY ISLAND: Canvas Giclée Reproduction
Supporting the work of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society

“The 1845 Franklin Expedition gravesite on Beechey Island is one of the most vivid examples in Canada’s history of the intersection of early Arctic exploration and the raw northern landscape. Camping nearby, I got a sense of the environment that these past explorers experienced. As I approached the scene, the lowering sun lit up the wooden headstones with a warm glow, bringing an ethereal beauty to this somber place.” – Cory
