Tubulent Lands 15x25 2024 NM Masterworks Award


Available at the Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery: www.karenwrayfineart.com.
Juried into the 2024 New Mexico Masterworks Exhibit: Mar 22-Apr 14. Thrilled to hear that my entry into the prestigious annual Masterworks Show in New Mexico won Third Place in Oil/Acrylics. This is part of a new series of paintings in the Abstract Landscape category. I am trying to capture the feel of the texture of the land and the form of the cliffs all around us in New Mexico. Aspect Ratio: 1.67. Near Golden Mean (1.62). Capturing the shapes of the hills leading up to Los Alamos and the texture and the aged feeling of these ancient hills. These were visible to the World War II scientists on their way up to the Labs to work in secrecy to win the war and as Oppenheimer said, to stop future wars forever.
