The Eyes of Texas

 "Texas Art and Texas Light" 
American Arts Quarterly, Volume 27, number 3.

Dennis Blagg’s panoramic landscapes, like his Passover (1997), take one out further west, to the eternal vast country that evokes the Biblical deserts of the Old Testament. Patrick Gabriel captures every mood and aspect of the Texas light, from the flat, sun-baked afternoon to the pinkish thundercloud over the high-tension power lines, to the soft evening over the prairie.
