In August of 2019, artist Tracy Stuckey and his family moved to Baja California Sur, Mexico for what was supposed to be a year. The artist's wife was on sabbatical doing a research project in the Sierra de la Laguna, their two children were enrolled in the local schools, and Stuckey was left to soak up the experience and work in their makeshift outdoor studio.
When preparing for this adventure, Stuckey's mind was full of ideas and perceptions of what he thought would be his experience. Shortly after arriving, the artist realized that his actual experience was not going to be as anticipated. His original intention was to work in the same manner as he usually does, exploring the romantic and exaggerated ideas about the region's history, especially as it related to the US side of the border; however, Stuckey soon realized that his intentions were ill-conceived and what he previously thought he would be exploring was not a reality.
