Artwork

"This piece was inspired by the dramatic approach and climb up one of my favorite mountains in southern Utah," says artist Crystal DiPietro. Sharing her depiction of this majestic view, Crystal articulates the rough terrain into lyrical paintwork. Yellow, brown, and orange hills are intricately veined with complementary purple. Rendering the valley and sky beyond in more restrained brushwork keeps the mountain as the focal point of this impressive scene.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Many artists work with the landscape, but Crystal DiPietro sees her works as different from most in the genre. “I tend not to see landscapes as soft and pretty, but as rugged, dramatic and colorful.” Many of her works depict wild storms and moody sunsets. She spends a lot of time in remote spots and uses layers of color to create her compositions. Her work hovers between a brief impression of a scene and a pure dream. Crystal's landscapes of southern Utah seem to undulate and continuously change. What's interesting, though, is that these mountains and valleys seem to do the same thing in person. In these areas, the view changes constantly throughout the day as the light shifts, throwing shadows of faces, mazes and alien patterns across the cliff faces. Crystal impressively captures what's there, and what seems to be but isn't.
