Beau Carey is a landscape and en plein air painter based in New Mexico. The works in Basin and Range look at landscapes as a series of repeated journeys. Each is made of the same mountain ranges repeated and flipped. Carey's work becomes defined by time; painted with different light, from different angles, some with suns and moons shown in varying states of rising and setting. His work explores and subverts the typical traditions of Western landscape art. Finding new ways to paint landscapes of the West, while recognizing the history of globalism and the new environmental dangers these landscapes face today. Inspired by John McPhee's geological travel novel by the same name, Carey's Basin and Range becomes a beautiful journey through time depicting a new perspective on the landscapes of the West.
