Ledger Series #29
Intricate layers of time and meaning are blended in this trompe l'oeil watercolor. Meticulously composed, this work reveals content rich in cultural references, Native American ceremonial vision quests and naturalistic imagery.
(b1941) When Lostetter began to paint in Abiquiu, New Mexico in 1977, his educational path from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Yale Graduate School provided the groundwork. Living in Abiquiu, with its history as a Native American and European crossroads as well as a place of diverse natural beauty, influences him to create the vibrant and detailed paintings he is known for in galleries in Taos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
