Internationally renowned conceptual photographer Daniela Edburg created the photograph above, titled The Plan, on a visit to Colorado. Daniela was inspired by the landscape of the Pawnee National Grassland, just northeast of Greeley, Colorado, and subsequently created the textile works in the photograph as part of a storyline. She then staged figures on the prairie to suggest a mysterious narrative in her installation Uprooted, part of Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place at the Denver Art Museum.
This photograph makes me wonder... Are these women studying the grass? Are they lost? Are they exploring? I love also the process that Daniela takes as an artist: allowing place to inspire an original work of art.
Limited-edition prints of The Plan are available for $650 in The Hamilton Building Shop. All proceeds go toward helping the museum purchase new works of art. This is a wonderful opportunity to add a piece of art to your home that is specific to Colorado and is also a part of the Mi Tierra exhibition and the DAM’s collection.
Mi Tierra is on view through October 22, 2017.
