Artwork description:

This landscape was made as a response to the idea of the desert as barren landscape and also as oasis. Made in 2015, my work at the time was exploring ideas of construction and destruction - the push and pull between man-made and natural forms, especially in the landscape of the American Southwest. One of the pivotal structures for our survival in the desert is a steady supply of water. Without that, we would be helpless. This piece uses a surrealistic approach, as if the water tower and made-made cement ground have fallen apart and nature is attempting to reclaim what had been lost. The emptiness and lack of human presence make the ladder (that leads to nowhere) all the more alluring.
