Grand Canyon

Bas-relief in salvaged wood #124, 149 x 183 x 11cm.
Private collection, Delft, Netherlands.

The cover of Arizona Highways magazine of February 1938 was the model for the Grand Canyon bas relief. The photo shows Emery Falls on Lake Mead in Arizona. Today Lake Mead is many miles away. The lake is manmade and formed after the completion of the Hoover Dam in 1935. Because of drought and increased demand for water the lake has been shrinking for decades. It is currently at less than 40% capacity.

Part of the Markers exhibition at Ron Mandos gallery, Amsterdam in 2020.
