Shelton says of his work: "I consider myself a regionalist and a surrealist. I have lived in the desert for ten years and hope that my work reflects that fact."

Art and geology : expressive aspects of the desert by Rita Deanin Abbey( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here are the striking paintings of artist Rita Deanin Abbey, juxtaposed against natural earth formations photographed by G. William Fiero, and in the often poetic text which accompanies the visual and intellectual awakening they express, is the answer. Images that emerge in the art from an intuitive creative process reflect a close connection to existing forms in nature. The artist brings her perceptions to the task of creating a unified composition out of the limitless number of elements at her disposal. The geologist, trained as a scientist to divide into segments all he perceives, finds the desert a perfect setting for inquiry-- by understanding the pieces he hopes to gain knowledge of its overall composition. This unique fusion of art and science has produced an original, challenging , and supremely stimulating book-- a book which provides a new way of looking at the earth upon which we live -- Back cover
