Nori Thorne

 

 

Sedona, AZ

Artist's Bio/Statement

I love to paint in the American Southwest where time and erosion reveal the bones of the earth and ancient artists left their marks in the remotest canyons.  In my canyonscapes I try to capture the strong sense of place, of secrets suddenly revealed—a vista glimpsed through a redrock window, a water pocket shining on slickrock, the cold walls of a slot canyon reflected in a black pool. 

The desert is a challenging place to work en plein air, sometimes requiring canyoneering skills, and always requiring endurance (once a midget faded rattlesnake slithered by my easel for a peek at my painting).  I use pastels for their portability and because they enable me to quickly capture the changing light and shadow that play across canyon country.

I am currently working on a series that depicts ancient Sinaguan ruins in Sedona’s redrock canyons.
