Description
In this view of the Glen Canyon Dam near Page, Arizona, the artist has flattened the composition so that everything pictured seems to occupy a single plane. The massive retaining wall of the dam at left and the engineering feat of a steel bridge at right do not appear as intrusive, man-made elements in this picture. Instead, their scale and surfaces blend in with the rocky landscape around them, creating an intriguing graphic composition.
