Fresh art at Denver International Airport

Marks on Soil, Akron, CO, 2014

A new photography exhibit by pilot, geoloist and artist Evan Anderman is on display at Denver International Airport.

Anderman’s selections for the exhibition, called “Imposition,” explore land use in Colorado’s Eastern Plains through images take from his airplane’s cockpit.

“I seek to challenge our understanding of the relationship between human development and the natural world by documenting the way we use the land,” explains Anderman. “When I fly over the high plains of eastern Colorado, I look at the many, overlapping layers and how the land has been modified by a combination of processes, both natural and man-made.”

“The Marks on Soil” photograph – above “shows what a wet summer we have been having here in Colorado,” said Anderman. “The farmers have to handle the standing water on their fields by plowing these marks on their fields.”

“Contour Intersections,” below, “shows the intersecting patterns that are created on four different fields from the contouring that is promoted by the Soil Conservation Service to prevent erosion,” said Anderman.

The image below that is called “Meander Boundary.”

The SFO Museum exhibit at SFO International Airport includes an exquisite cobweb table lamp, one of only seven known to exist, a one-of-a-kind Zinnia table lamp, a Peacock window panel, oil paintings, glass vases, ceramics and more.
