LV Sketchbook Page 031


As promised, more artwork about stacks of stuff. This one imagines the stuff and activity in Shackleton’s Cape Royds hut as they worked the letterpress. The press itself was removed from the premises long ago and was said to be returned to England. Whether it was kept as an historic artifact or discarded as obsolete is unclear, but I’m looking into it.

I’m using a quasi-Cubist approach to stylistically describe Scott and Shackleton’s era. Cubism and the heroic age of polar exploration both developed at the same time, made use of found objects, and were groundbreaking exploits in their own ways.
