“I wish to inform and prepare my viewers that the symbol is the landscape, specifically the mountainous landscape. My work consists of a recurring question: How do I frame Mountains as an internal experience?
How can I explain the inexplicable?”
“The infatuation of the mountainous landscape, allows me to seek answers to questions that I don’t quite understand, as if I could locate the reasoning for my existence in rolling hills with horizon lines that change shape and size. Still I search…
The process is to capture the unexplainable feeling of euphoria I have in this landscape. Standing in the foothills of the front range, and slowly moving to the highest peak in the Divide. I cannot help but think of things that are greater than me when facing these giants.
I discovered that Mountains can be a parallel to the psychedelic experience.”
“The psychedelic to me is the unravelling of a cassette tape; just pulling it out of its casing. Holding my breath until I realize that I can unwind and I use this realization to photograph and compose strange sensory perceptions of the mountainscape.
This happens when I think about them and how I look through the lens, during the time I spend with them. I am so sure about the massif, I know it is solid and unmoving.
I am dwarfed by both scale and time.”
“Confidence stems from the euphoric state that emcompases my being. Entering this landscape provides the same state as an intertwined idea of the psychedelic experience.
What is psychedelia?
Intense electrifying colors, radiating, feeling as if your mind has no walls and can seep into the space that my body inhabits. The neon and the electric waves of color that attach themselves to my surroundings. My subconscious latches on to the color and geometric shapes, that infinitely surge to the sound of music. Internally intense as these colors and shapes move to the frequency of myself.
Hold this as you view the images, and allow yourself a sensation of altered perception.”

Richard Serra (born November 2, 1938) is an American minimalist sculptor, video artist and painter known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra was involved in the Process Art Movement. Since 1971, Serra has made large-scale drawings on handmade Hitomi paper or Belgian linen using various techniques. In the early 1970s he drew primarily with ink, charcoal, and lithographic crayon on paper. His primary drawing material has been the paintstick, a wax-like grease crayon. Serra melts several paintsticks to form large pigment blocks.
