In Greenland, Durango artist will blend art and science
Rebecca Barfoot will spend six weeks living in this cabin for her summer residency at the Upernavik Retreat in Greenland. The house was originally built in 1848 to house the island’s cooper, who built barrels there to ship and store the seal and whale oil that kept the settlement alive.
Barfoot’s cyanotype “Wasted/Wonderland” is a warm-up, so to speak, for her upcoming residency at Upernavik. Summer temperatures typically top out at about 45 degrees at the Arctic Circle archipelago.
