Description
Driving along lonely stretches of the Southwest, the artist became interested in the structures that hold power lines aloft and admired their variety and sculptural beauty. For her series Gridlines, she photographed these man-made giants in the landscape as a way of reexamining them and the choices we make as a culture about energy consumption.
