About Bob Diercksmeier

As an Arizona native, I’ve always had a love for the landscape here. The Sonoran desert strikes a balance between movement and stillness, noise and silence, mystery and reality. The continuity of life in the desert has always amazed me.

I represent this balance and continuity in my work using line, color and shape. I use a continuous line in some of my pieces to convey the ongoing spirit of life in the harsh desert climate. The colors I use range from subtle earth tones to vibrant, saturated fields of color. And I use abstracted shapes to represent Earth, Sky, Water, Sun and Moon.

The rhythm and harmony of the desert, and the perseverance of life in its extreme environment are the primary inspirations behind my work, and I strive to give a sense of the vitality and magic of the desert southwest in every piece I create.
