Artist History: Richard D. Pick is a photographer based in Park City, Utah. For the last 35 years he has lived and photographed Colorado and Utah. His landscapes are almost exclusively of subjects on the Colorado Plateau. He enjoys taking his viewer to places that are off the most traveled routes. This is the hidden Colorado Plateau. Each new project pushes him deeper into the Plateau. These are very intimate landscapes. All of the works are characterized by their sharp detail and large print sizes.
Artist Statement: These works take the viewer to places they may never have the opportunity to experience. The muted colors are possible only from reflected light or light created during those moments before sunrise or after sunset. These are special places that deserve our respect and protection. The emotion they invoke will differ for each of us. Many of these photos can have a mystic quality or be very abstract and the subject may not be entirely obvious on first viewing. These works are meant to be studied and explored just as we might do if really there.
