PLEASE NOTE: This lot was sold in an online benefit auction where all proceeds went to the Whyte Museum in Banff, Alberta and there was no Buyer's Premium.; According to the artist: I like to imagine earlier days when Catharine and Peter Whyte and other artist, explorers and mountaineers experienced stunning Rocky Mountain gems like Sunshine Meadows and how we all have been impacted by their challenges, beauty and sublime impressions. This Polaroid with pastel was initially created en plein air while responding to a sense of place through my feelings, the scenery, geography, weather and wildlife [mosquitoes!]. Later, the manipulated Polaroid was photographed or scanned and then printed as an enlarged photograph. As an artist and mountaineer I find these outdoor experiences to be a meditative and timeless process that often create a powerful spiritual awareness and vivid memories.
