Artwork description:

Driving towards the Mexican border the landscape becomes very sparse, minimalist, the weather and changing clouds transforming the views every minute. It has almost a meditative quality. The cinematic quality and extreme weather of the Mojave, Sonoran and Chihuahuan desert have inspired the collection Desert Diary. It often feels familiar, like a place you know, but have only seen in a movie. I have travelled these deserts for many years, and no road trip or landscape ever feel the same because of the constantly changing light and shapes of the desert. This image was taken in White Sands National Park, where white gypsum sand creates sculptural textures and patterns.


Artwork dimension 60x60cm, this includes a white border of 7.5cm on each side. Actual image will be 45x45cm.

Printed on Hahnemühle. FineArt Pearl. Silk Gloss 285g/sim

Edition of 150 at this size.
