I’ve never been to Utah, unless you count a layover at the airport on the way to California. It was snowing in Salt Lake City at the time.
However, I have seen some photos of the landscape there. Somehow, when I created this image, I was reminded of those beautiful rock formations on a clear hot sunny day. I imagined hiking through this fantasy landscape, and the name for this image came to me and stuck.
‘Utaopiah’ will be available for viewing (along with many other pieces) in person on May 4 & 5, from 10 to 5 p.m. during the Oxford Studio Tour, at my home gallery, which is Location #4 on the tour. It is the only one of my metal prints that actually has a frame (the frame is black) – something new I tried out this time!
