Still There
by Santa Fe Artist Dawn Chandler

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

‘Still There’ is undoubtedly the most abstract of my “textual landscapes’. The underlying scene is that of looking west to Rayado Canyon — a glorious passage in the south country of New Mexico’s Philmont Ranch. A rose sunset glows through blue and rusted filters of memory — as words — thoughts — come in and out of mind. . . .
The text emerging in this painting comes from ‘The Call of the Wild,’ the epic poem by Robert Service.
