About this product
- DescriptionThe rugged land of Texas' Big Bend region is legendary. Towering mountains, austere desert, canyons, and rivers converge in a place of beauty, loneliness, and adventure. Fort Worth artist Dennis Blagg began painting landscapes from the Big Bend twenty years ago. His breathtaking, near-photorealistic portraits of this remote mountain desert are as big as the landscape itself_some of the paintings are ten feet wide and four feet tall. Through his work, Blagg brings the viewer both the beauty and the forbidding nature of West Texas. Blagg has a fascination with and love for his ever-changing subject. The desert represents a landscape of broken promise, Blagg explains, yet it is a place of vast spiritual content...an emptiness waiting to be filled...the Big Bend offers many faces to be painted. Big Bend Landscapes presents fifty of the artist's most powerful color paintings along with twenty striking black-and-white drawings. Blagg's brief commentaries on each work offer insight into both his art and the land it captures.
