Scenic Eclipse reveals new art collection
Three original artworks were commissioned and a selection of 124 prints selected for display in all of the ship’s suites. Scenic Eclipse currently owns the largest collection of Mitch’s work.

”Mitch’s work is a perfect complement to Scenic Eclipse”, said Karen Moroney, Project Director - Design, Scenic Group. “His works are truly beautiful. They reflect the colours and movement of the ocean and exhibit a passion for life and the environment, which is at the very essence of the design of Scenic Eclipse.

“It was very important to us to include something uniquely and expressly Australian on this ship. Mitch’s work is a true reflection of the incredible talent in this country, and we are incredibly proud to be able to feature his works”, said Mrs Moroney.
The three main pieces commissioned for Scenic Eclipse are part of The Melt collection – Costeria Amalfitana, Raja Ampat, and The Antarctic Peninsula.
“The intention behind these works was to create a collection of art which illustrates a few specific oceanic environments of beauty and natural wealth,” said Mitch. “The artwork pays tribute to what we value from a positive perspective, as a reflection of our love, wonder and appreciation for the natural world.
“These pieces invite you to dive into my perception of three very unique environments which we know are vital to the health, diversity and abundance of life in our oceans. These areas deserve great recognition, and conservation should be at the forefront of our consciousness towards them.”
