The west is a landscape that haunts artists. Luke Anderson, an emerging artist and Cheyenne native, acknowledges the debt his work owes to artists that have come before. At the same time, his work is a fresh take–stylized representational, with elements of abstraction, surrealism and more. Many are landscapes which he grew up seeing around him reinterpreted. Others are new places. All offer more to the viewer who stays beyond the curious glance: humor, commentary, new angles. He works primarily in oil, partially as a tribute to artists who have come before him.

Hauntings and Landscapes of the West is on display from September 14 through October 28, 2017. See more of Luke Anderson’s paintings and drawings online.
