Go with the floe

During his three-month sojourn with the British Antarctic Survey, artist John Kelly experienced the polar region as sublime but often darkly ominous. This painted-over photomontage — part of a six-part series called Silent Sea — portrays the Antarctic's threatening beauty. It is part of an exhibition of his work, “Due South: Art and the Antarctic”, which runs from 24 February to 1 August at the Natural History Museum in London.
