Nevada Unearthed

30in x 50in
linen, glass, semi-precious stones, metal

private collection

The linen, glass, stone and metal landscape image represents a sheered-off mountain top in central Nevada. Mined for it’s minerals, the remaining land’s erosion and patina from water-runoff and minerals is astounding. The tapestry represents my artistic effort to reclaim some wilderness from the hands of industry and record some beauty even amongst the plunder. Looking at the big picture can help us make stronger individual choices, especially today.
