John DePuy, Crestone Needles, Colorado

The expressionist abstract panting is landscape influenced. The bottom two-thirds is painted deep lavender. A white line forms the horizon at the upper fourth of the work. Above that are pale lavender hills, the “Needles” are capped with an orange band. The sky is pink. The land is without spatial time; nature is contradicted.
