The Process

Reminiscent of the western iconography of my youth, this large-scale work was created with thousands of vintage papers cut into individual pieces and collaged to wood. All highlights and outlines are still paper, not ink or paint.

The Story

There is a peace that descends from the western sky at night. It drapes the landscape in an azure blanket as the night-birds cry out from somewhere down in the arroyo. The moon is an oxblood sliver carved from the heavens, whose glow reflects from the red desert rocks, lighting the way for the lone rider, the night scout.
