Somewhere Over Nevada

Acrylic, 2011

The Grand Canyon - I visited the Canyon in 2011, flying in by small jet afforded an aerial view and changing light. From the vivid red-orange rocks to the muted tones created by what foliage was surviving the desert landscape, the sense of movement can be felt at all vantage points. Perhaps a little 'vertigo' from the dizzying heights combined with the high temperatures. The lines differentiating between years and geological zones, it is a somewhat surreal experience of time travel, and I traveled far this day. The floating orbs represent the passage of time and sense of time travel through the layers of Earth.
