Early fog clears slowly over a marsh in Yellowstone National Park.

Initially drawn to the gorgeously lush and surreal scenes in your body of work on the site, Creek, Marsh and Fog may have been overshadowed by other pieces with sumptuous color. Looking back over the series of achromatic landscapes, I’m struck by the luminosity of what appears to be natural light. The meandering stream of low water gently guides the viewer into the space here, and trails deep into the silvery marsh. The sensation of the trees floating just above the water is amplified by the lighter values reflected towards the bottom of their trunks. The more contrasted tree with the knots and broken off branches serves as a focal totem point and almost figurative point of reference. The asymmetrical distribution of trees allows for open entry into the left side of the picture plane; here the trees in the distance seem further bleached out, or overcome by the dense fog. Road into Fog pushes this subtly even further. The viewer is ultimately forced to search for the subject into the blanketing fog. A road still offers visual pass, but is quickly overcome by snowy white. The stillness in both pieces is beautiful, but also disquieting in the unrelenting emptiness.
