Painted from an intuitive point of view, these works are a unique perspective of life and landscape of the desert. The paintings evoke the spirituality and beauty of the local landscape, which Hoyes has used as his Studio for over 25 years, ultimately speaking to its transmogrification by climate change.
These works respond to the precarious state of the environment through a personal lens. Experimenting with form and narrative in the water pigments. With large paintings, the artist addresses how ideology of loving the environment means as much as technology, industry, and their progress. Asking the audience to be observant and stewards of the changes and how people can control their impact on all living things.
