‘Box Canyon Dream #1’-2006, 40″x 90″
I wanted to go to Georgia O’keeffe’s ‘Ghost Ranch’ in New Mexico. I love desert and I was hoping to understand New Mexico’s attraction, to O’keeffe. I can say; it has a timeless and dangerous beauty, that can kill you and Wow you, at the same time. For a creative person; it is an intoxicating mix of otherworldly beauty, immersed in a unique and dangerous palette.
Ghost Ranch is awesome!

‘BOX CANYON DREAM #3’ was created in 2006 at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. Of course, Georgia O’Keeffe made the ranch famous in the art world. I wanted to understand why she was drawn to it and why it took such a hold on her. The place has a timeless spirituality, that can’t be adequately described in words or imagery. I’ll never know it as she did, but I know I need to return to it. It has that special quality that places that have hosted countless generations of people in the distant past seem to hold. It’s tough and beautiful, as she came to be, shaped by it, as she drew inspiration from it…
