The Lost Whaling Stations of the Sub-Antarctic

13 April to 22 June 2019
Pulpit Room

Theo Crutchley-Mack was invited to be artist in residence on the island of South Georgia which lies 900 miles southeast of the Falklands in the Sub-Antarctic. The island is home to the forgotten Whaling Industries active throughout the 19th century; clearly evident in the sizeable stations scattered along the coastline in ruin. Theo strives to record the obscure landscape, often abandoned and remote. Located over 7500 miles from home, these industrial landscapes were an idyllic inspiration to begin his most ambitious series of paintings to date.
