Pastel Wrinkles – Abstract
Like the deep wrinkles and creases of an aged sunbeaten face in a pastel portrait, the land of the Navajo Indian Reservation in Northeast Arizona is a colorful sculpted monument to the the continent’s past. In this confined view Southwest of Pastora Peak the wrinkles are compressed and their dominant waves cross and scatter. In earthen hues the abstraction is subtle, but when the colors are intensified through saturation, the contrasting layers pop out of the landscape grow more abstract. A beautiful distraction in the corner of a majestic portrait.
A true image, color saturated and polarized.
