Young Navajo artist Chris Peshlakai, has a great sense of depth and perspective. He is exceptionally talented and – remarkably – entirely self-taught.
He makes this landscape piece come alive by including great detail in the rocks, trees and water.
His sense of perspective and proportion elevate his work beyond the merely realistic.
The powerful sense of serenity and depth produces an almost other-worldly feeling.
His mastery of his medium is absolute; the trees are dense, close in, and drift gauzily into the mist in the distance.
The rushing stream can almost be heard, the damp freshness of the air almost felt, and there is a profound sense of a tranquil day breaking.
(By the way, fly fisherman will salivate at this painting. Look at that pool in the distance!)
Matted and framed, ready to hang, and to be a constant refreshment to your eyes and soul.
