Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

"Rio Grande" is the second in a series of my paintings that consider the complicated history of the American West through the interactions of place, technology, and humanity. Like my earlier painting "Cadillac Desert", "Rio Grande" is set in a desert locale situated along the Utah/ Arizona border. These paintings seem to depict a timeless space close to the Bears Ears National Monument, home to more than 100,000 Native American archaeological and cultural sites, considered sacred by many tribes.The Bears Ears Coalition website explains that,"The Navajo Nation and the White Mesa Ute Reservation border Bears Ears on the south and east, respectively. Navajo and Ute people frequent the land to collect herbs and medicine, forage for food (such as piñon nuts), gather firewood for heating and ceremonial use, and to hunt game." Indian Country is a term used by Native American folks to refer to the amorphously bordered country within a country in which the Indian population lives.

In my painting "Rio Grande" a woman watches as a train moves past. Timelessness meets time.
