Lot A, Mills Heights, © 2001 by Ellen Wixted. Oil on canvas, 20 x 27 inches.

“Although my ambivalence towards change in the landscape is part of what drives my choice of subject matter,” Ellen Wixted writes, “I don’t want my paintings to be read as an expression of nostalgia for a ‘purer’ time, nor do I want them to function as visual manifestos for environmental activism. Change in the landscape is inevitable, and everything we do leaves marks on the land.” www.ellenwixted.com
