Catalogue Note

"Landscape for me took on the problem of composition. I wanted to eliminate the horizon line, to see if I could get a landscape image that didn't use a horizontal fixation. Instead, I try to establish a positional directive for the viewer⁠—whether it's up, down, helicopter view, world view, valley view⁠—to try and get some sense of loss of the convenience or comfort of standing and looking at things, to throw people off a bit." Wayne Thiebaud
