Capitol Reef Abstract

Capitol Reef Abstract

Overflying Capitol Reef, the collision of colors and textures between the white sandlike fingers of the eastern ridge and the layered red walls of the western facing cliffs create an irregular visual ripple in the landscape. Umber, orange, red, green, blue and white brush strokes on the irregular surface give depth to the one-dimensional vertical view. The closer we look, the more abstract the patterns appear. The lesson is, perhaps, that abstract art is ever-present if we simply look closely enough.
