Mixed Media - The combination of two or more different media in a single work of Art.
A simple sign art? The National Parks signs are carefully designed, they will be seen by millions of visitors a year, from not just America, but from the rest of the world.
This is a combination of many materials and textures, chosen to represent that the desert itself is not just a monolithic boring slab of sand. The Death Vally sign (May 2005) consists of Steel, Granite and Yellow Pine.
Aerial Perspective - the perspective of less distinct contours and value contrasts as forms recede into the background. Colors appear to be washed out in the distance or to take on the color of the atmosphere.
That made me think of this Death Valley Photo we took, again May 2005:
The mountains seems to just become part of the clouds...
