The work displays many keystone elements of southwestern art. For example, the saturated colors of the evening sunsets and familiar landscapes. However, the work has a surreal quality that goes beyond tangible expression.
"Their inspiration is drawn from their past experiences as well as the inherent language of symbolism that we, as human beings, share. Their work is a way for them to communicate thoughts, emotions, and feelings that are otherwise hard to describe.
