Exhibitions, Through the Eyes of Artists

Topanga Canyon

Project Description

Looking downward from the highest point of Topanga Canyon Boulevard, viewers can see glittering lights that shine like jewels. Hopelessly romantic, the image conjures up feelings of love and dreams coming true.

Artist Statement

“I have lived in the Valley since 1978 and love it. I wanted to do something very dreamy. I thought of going on top of Topanga Canyon and creating an image that was ethereal. I shot it in the evening, at twilight, when nothing is clear, where something is like a memory and you can’t explain it in words.”
