A fervent hiker and camper, artist Crystal DiPietro invites the viewer on an adventure of the majestic wilderness of the southwest. "This piece is about standing on a high mountaintop watching the clouds drift by and dreaming about catching a ride," she says. Working with a cool palette, Crystal delivers a commanding view of the scenery, with verdant pine trees dotting the rugged landscape.

Crystal DiPietro

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.
