Have You . . . ?
by Santa Fe Artist Dawn Chandler

contemporary abstract ‘textual’ landscape
mixed media on panel
12” x 24” x 2

The scene in 'Have You . . . ?' is that of the high alpine trail leading to and from New Mexico's highest summit, Wheeler Peak. Gauzy curtains of rusty paint cause the view to fade in and out of focus — much like our memories — as words — thoughts — come in and out of mind; three hikers walk on ahead.
The text emerging in this painting comes from ‘The Call of the Wild,’ the epic poem by Robert Service.
