Spectacularly serene. Mesas. Deserts. Canyons. Gorges. Dunes. Mountains. Lakes. Rivers. And skies as vast as the ocean. The Southwest landscape is a wonderland of dramatic natural settings as deep and rich as their primordial roots. Created during my residency in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and visits to Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevadas, my series plays with the striking rock formations, unparalleled palettes, and diverse textures, from scruffy to lush, craggy to velvety, gushing to billowy. The earthy rawness is heavenly hypnotic.
