New Mexico Artist David Disko

I depict landforms in a way that an amalgam of an architect, geologist and cartographer might.

At every new place I encounter I wonder, how did it come to be like this, what events or processes made it so? With research I try to finds answers, then in a manner akin to reverse engineering I set about to achieve a semblance of understanding. My process is to take apart a landscape and re-assemble it, creating objects and images that explain it or tell its story. These stories are sometimes chronicles of inquiry, other times accounts of a personal experience I had there. My stories can also be about the depiction of a place, by legend or account.
