Notes: Hagege's modern vision of the American West is a landscape distilled into its purest essence. The large planes of color, masterful use of light and observation of nature merge to create a place where imagination and realism coexist. He is a keen observer of nature but interprets it using his own unique "stylized realism", layering patterns and geometric shapes to create visual roadmaps for the viewer. In this example, the clouds are created of vast domed curves, echoing the shape of horns on the floating skull as well as the ridges in the mesa.
This is the artist's vision of the world; "that's where it starts and that's where it ends," he says.
