A bit about “The Arid West” and “Conifer Hillside” by Clyde Aspevig....
"From the arid deserts of the West, to the lush conifer forest behind my studio, I find the never ending spectacle of fractals shaped by texture, color and light. I am particularly interested in a flattened sense of space in both paintings which eludes to the duality between the abstract and the representational. It gives the viewer multiple ways to interpret and enjoy the paintings.
“Pony, Montana” by Clyde Aspevig is about metaphors. There is a story behind every object, manmade or not, in the painting. The work is meant to provoke conversation.
