Similarly, the door-sized Falling Into The Cut (2015) is propped on a tall stick and appears as a passage into a dreamlike, mercurial landscape. Made by adding swathes of purple, pink, and green to an image of an undulating desert, the hypnotizing photograph recalls the kind of awe that rolling waves and gradient skies inspire. But there is also a sense of impermanence. At any moment, colors and crevasses could slide off the canvas, and the wooden stick might collapse out from under it all. In this way, Doty/Glasco transform natural substances, surfaces, and patterns into amulets that pay homage to nature’s beauty, but also warn of its ephemerality.
